    Cameron and Ann come off as engaging and well-developed characters, but the constraints of Christian fiction make the New Age guru more caricature than character. It is supposed that his excessive labour in connection with this book hastened his death. Its detailed descriptions of key historical events, the life and times of people, both great and infamous, and long forgotten customs of cultures from every corner of the world, is a must-read for anyone aspiring to understand history as our forefathers saw it. Early in the play there is a sequence when Len Hoch rhapsodizes on the art of cheesemaking. Looking back in anger and sadness, Wilson bitterly excoriates the warped morality of a culture which pays lip service to Christian community but will tolerate no deviance from a dehumanizing morality. Asa tells Cassie about the man.

    Cameron and Ann come off as engaging and well-developed characters, but the constraints of Christian fiction make the New Age guru more caricature than character. Asa, who knows about the stranger who wrote in her book, asks Catherine to meet him at the rock. His story evolves from his joining the First Crusade, and follows him through to the taking of Jerusalem, and home again, focusing on his growth as a man, and as a Crusader. This is Stanislavskian sense memory at its highest level of application. Publishers Weekly Cameron Vaux's mind is slipping; memories of his wife, who died two years ago, and his father are vanishing. Two scenes featuring Boris McGiver -- one in which he is baptized and another in which he meets with James in the woods-- are grippingly acted and staged here, as in the storm scene, kudos to Dennis Parichy and Chuck London and Stewart London's sound effects which strong support Beatty's set.

    As a genre it might be classified as a mystery -- to be more specific and in keeping with Wilson's concerns, a socio-political mystery. Ann arrives with her son Daniel and for a while things are awkward around the house. A truly unique way to showcase important events in American history. It sits on my night stand ready to entertain and enlighten. Shortly after the story, Catherine thinks she sees a phantom in the woods.

The book of days book

When my aunt gave me this book, I almost didn't read it just because of this corny title. Although I've now sat with it for many more weeks than one simple reading.

It was stated to be the desire of the Editor—while not discouraging the progressive spirit of the age, to temper it with affectionate feelings towards what is poetical and elevated, honest and of good report, in the old national life ; while in no way discountenancing great material interests, to evoke an equal activity in those feelings beyond self, on which depend remoter but infinitely greater interests; to kindle and sustain a spirit of patriotism, tending to unity, peace, and prosperity in our own state, while not exclusive of feelings of benevolence, as well as justice, towards others.

The show happening sort of within a show.

The Astrology Book of Days

Cassie has three brothers—David, Asa, and William. The play's mood shifts from light to increasing darkness. Anyone familiar with Lanford Wilson's socio-political inclinations won't be surprised that bubbling beneath Dublin's tranquil surface is a dark current of divisive attitudes waiting for a storm or an accidental death to burst to the top.

Actually, there are only eleven Dubliners, since Boyd Middleton Jonathan Hoganis in town just long enough to direct the play-within-a-play, Saint Joan which allows Wilson to parallel Shaw's attack on the church with the Christian Right.

It was desired that these volumes should be a repertory of old fireside ideas in general, as well as a means of improving the fireside wisdom of the present day.

Editorial Reviews In this supernaturally tinged suspense novel, Rubart Rooms crafts a credible legend: a "book of days" contains the past and future, and Cameron Vaux needs to find it.

The former play was a pitiless contemporary portrait of the socially deviant denizens of an all night seedy coffee shop on upper Broadway—petty thieves, pimps, male and female hustlers, junkies, transvestites, "the scum, the lost, …the dispossessed.

Their search takes them to Twin Peaks, OR, where they meet a New Age fanatic who will do anything to retrieve the book. She is taken out of school because the new teacher is too harsh and gets home schooling from her step-mother. At various times during the play one or other of the actors, in or out of character, functions as a member of a chorus elucidating an element of the plot or character.

Appropriately, everyone has his or her distinctive character signature. The Dublin tycoon and minor tyrant's death is accompanied by one of the best staged real storms I've seen in a long while.

Catherine agrees and at the end of the diary, she reflects on her last moments at home. Asa, who knows about the stranger who wrote in her book, asks Catherine to meet him at the rock. Over the years, I've described it as the version of today's "Trivial Pursuit" or "cultural literacy" books, but those descriptions do it a disservice.

Enter the actors who address us directly about the town the play is set in. Book of Days, like Burn This, uses a fatal accident as the device to create its dramatic complications.

Books are cool again.

Within those constraints, Rubart has created a page-turner. By staging Saint Joan, Middleton is, if not the stranger riding into town to save it from its baser self, the facilitator. All shy away from the dire consequences of non-accidental death— particularly the major authority figures of the reverend and the sheriff— and anathematize the accuser, not the accused.

The day of profession has now merged into the day of performance, the half of the work being completed. He's joined in the hunt by Jessie's foster sister, Ann Banister, a TV adventure show host who's interested in finding out more about her family.

Then he learns about the mysterious Book of Days, in which the memories of each soul on Earth are recorded. Wilson here employs a technique he often favors: to gently fracture the surface of realism while essentially remaining true to its conventions.
