Publisher's Summary

Celebrated playwright and magnetic wit Wendy Wasserstein was firmly rooted in New York's cultural life, but her appeal is universal. Shiksa Goddess collects her urbane, inspiring, and deeply empathetic essays, all written when she was in her forties, and all infused with her trademark irreverent humor: everything from Chekhov, politics, and celebrity, to family, fashion, and real estate. Whether fretting over her figure, discovering her gentile roots, proclaiming her love for ordered-in breakfasts, lobbying for affordable theater, or writing tenderly about her very Jewish mother and her own daughter, born when she was 48 and single, Wasserstein reveals the full, dizzying life of a shiksa goddess with unabashed candor and inimitable style.
Wendy Wasserstein received both a Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1989 for The Heidi Chronicles. She died of lymphoma on January 30, 2006 at age 55. The following night Broadway's lights were dimmed in her honor.
