The turbulent relationship between struggling writer Milton Klonsky and his mentor, the brilliant poet Delmore Schwartz, is the basis of this engrossing drama

Warm scenes of their deep friendship alternate with vaudevillian routines and bold theatrics, ultimately painting a harrowing portrait of Schwartz's unnerving descent into madness

"This deft two-person drama nicely captures what it's like for a writer to be inspired and intimidated at the same time ... not another story about the decline of a famous poet so much as an uplifting one about the evolution of an unknown writer" ~ NY Times

"A literate, sophisticated coupleportrays vividly the agonies and joys of the relationshipDelmore Schwartz's words lie refulgent in their lucid mystery" ~ Village Voice
