Stewart Parker

A Life

Marilynn Richtarik

  • The first biography of the important Irish playwright Stewart Parker
  • Based on Parker's personal papers (including his diaries, notebooks, and early drafts of his literary works - all still in private hands) and on extensive interviews with his family, friends, acquaintances, contemporaries, and collaborator
  • Covers all of Parker's major works, especially his drama for radio, television, the stage, and film
  • Parker's writing career is presented in the contexts of his life and times, so that the reader learns much about both his personal history and psychology and the history and culture of Northern Ireland
  • A lively and compelling narrative
