Literary Nonfiction. Memoir. In WAITING, Elizabeth Swados brings her lively autobiographical pieces—many ofwhich first ran in The New York Times and O, The Oprah Magazine—together forthe first time. Among those appearing in the book are Sean Penn, Meryl Streep, Yehuda Amichai, Ellen Stewart, and Marlon Brando, as well as moving accounts of Swados's schizophrenic brother, her work with young actors from New York to Abu Dhabi, and her explorations of the creative process—all told with grace and humor.

Having written reassuringly about mental illness (My Depression: A Picture Book), Swados's latest collection of published and unpublished nonfiction pieces seems intended only to make herself feel good.
