Overview

Inspired by American playwright Sarah Ruhl?s 100 Essays I Don?t Have Time to Write, his book is a series of miniature reflections, meditations, and ruminations on subjects encompassing matters of theatre and poetry, two subjects very close to Garebian?s heart. The titles alone speak to the little book?s uniqueness: Watching Your Father Die on Stage, Do Actors Love the Audience? Filthy Shakespeare, Great Roles Can Be Cannibalistic, Japanese Death Poems, Poetry and Persian Wrestling, What Story Does Poetry Tell? Armenian Poetry, and Can There Be Poetry After Donald Trump? Perceptive, witty, and intimate, the mini musings bubble with a sense of wonder, excitement, and intimacy. A vibrant, provocative series of mini musings that also affords insight into a particular artistic sensibility as several pieces are really slices of memoir and autobiography.
