The acclaimed author of A Dangerous Friend explores his signture concerns-the moral dilemmas of journalism, law, and public life, and the limits of love-in a new play and previously uncollected fiction. Lowell Limpett is a journalist at the end of his career. He addresses the reader in a voice that is melancholy, honest, and wonderfully, comfortably compelling about the beauty of a clean lead, the death of old friends, and what we read when we read the news. Two stories, both previously uncollected, will follow Lowell Limpett. The issues of work, love, and duty to the self are addressed as only Ward Just could in the three pieces. In a new foreword, Just discusses the new-for him-experience of writing a play and the process of compiling this new collection.
