Horton Foote: America’s Storyteller
No playwright in the history of the American theater has captured the soul of the nation more incisively than Horton Foote. In the first comprehensive biography of this remarkable writer, Wilborn Hampton introduces Foote to countless Americans who have admired his work. Hampton, a theater critic for The New York Times, offers a colorful, compulsively readable account of a life and career that spanned seven decades.
