Summary
For more than seventy years, beginning in 1939, when he penned his first play, Wharton Dance, Horton Foote was regarded as one of Americas most revered dramatists. With his probing and perceptive dramas, he succeeded in charting the landscape of small-town America while creating classics of modern theatre and film that have found devoted audiences around the world. Foote wrote more than a hundred plays and screenplays for cinema, theatre, and television, and was equally successful in all three mediums--a record of variety and productivity unmatched by any other writer. Inspired by his hometown of Wharton, Texas, Foote wrote timeless tales of family, home, and the mysterious resilience of the human spirit that garnered him dozens of prestigious awards, including a National Medal of Arts. With a foreword by Hallie Foote, this biography is the most thorough and comprehensive to date of American dramatist Horton Foote
