New from TCG books.

Conversations with Peter Brook is an extended journey into the thought processes of one of the giants of contemporary theatre. Critic Clive Barnes calls the book, edited by Margaret Croyden, "A fascinating and provocatively stimulating distillation of three decades of intense conversations between one of the 20th century's few true theatre innovators and America's leading writer on the theatrical avant-garde." In these interchanges from 1970 to 2000, the director discusses with Croyden such major works as his landmark airborne A Midsummer Night's Dream and his untraditional interpretation of the opera La Tragedie de Carmen. He also covers the establishment of the Paris Center, his work in the Middle East and Africa, and his masterwork, the nine-hour production of The Mahabharata.
