Summary
"A literary biography is a life in the context of literary works. ... This literary biography examines Foote's life, career, and best plays in a single volume. [It] begins with chapters on Foote's early life, then moves to plays written for the New York theatre. Next [it] examines his teleplays composed during the Golden Age of Television in the early 1950s. A biographical chapter based on his letters follows. After noting his screenwritings in original works and adaptations for the movies and television, [it] recounts his triumphant return to the theatre from the 1970s to the 1990s. Foote's life provides the framework for analyzing the development of his art and thought in the leading plays."--The preface, p. ix-x
