Two things:

1) LOVED Living Dead Girl, though not a fan of it being a hardcover because of its length. That's pretty much my only complaint about it, lol.

2) The Glass Menagerie is one of my FAVORITEST plays ever!!! I've only seen it on stage once, but it was amazing. It was at the Kennedy Center and Sally Field was playing the mom. I read this play first in my junior year of high school and did my literary analysis paper on it, which I was very proud of. I enjoyed doing that paper (got an A+ on it too!!)

LDG completely and utterly lives up to its name and its promise.

Sally Field must have been fantastic in that role! I like her.
