Read full description of the books:
Californian Helm is considered a "boy wonder" in the realms of directing and play- and screenwriting. Like many young playwrights, he began doctoring scripts in Hollywood and eventually had his own scripts accepted. His best-known screenplays resulted in the films Stranger Than Fiction and Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium. In 2007, the actor John Malkovich acted in and directed his play The Good Canary; a Mexican production followed. This translation of Helm's play includes photographs from both the Mexican and the French productions, as well as texts by Malkovich and Fabrizio Mejia Madrid. Like many contemporary plays, Helm touches on modern ailments and alienation, here exploring anorexia, rape, and social expectations. And as in many classics, the tragic heroine here combines touches of Blanche DuBois's vulnerability and Hedda Gabler's cruelty. Despite its New York-centric feel, Helm's play is universal enough to be at home on stages in Mexico City and Paris. The Mexican production of The Good Canary ran for the weeks to sold-out houses. This handsome edition is recommended for libraries and bookstores with strong drama collections.Catherine Rendón, Savannah, GA
