Collected Stories

In a provocative play, respected short-story writer Ruth Steiner becomes the mentor to budding fiction writer Lisa Morrison. Ruth eventually welcomes the awe-struck student, revealing secrets of the craft and intimate details of her painful past including a shattering affair with the poet Delmore Schwartz. But Lisa's emergence as a successful novelist, cannibalising Ruth's own experiences for her subject matter, takes an appalling toll on the artist, as Lisa evolves from protege to friend to peer and ultimately to threatening rival.
Author Donald Margulies
