About this book
Peter Shaffer remains among the most successful dramatists of the late Twentieth Century. Careful considerations of his serious works - Five Finger Exercise, Royal Hunt of the Sun, Shrivings, Equus, Amadeus and Yonadab - comprise the main portion of this book. But Shaffer's early detective novels, broadcast plays, and especially comic pieces such as Black Comedy/White Liars, Private Ear/Public Eye, and Lettice & Lovage also receive attention to help define the unique 'voice' of Peter Shaffer.
