Amulets Against the Dragon Forces

A novel by

A powerful and deeply moving study of the destructive effects of lovelessness and loneliness on a sensitive adolescent. Presented to critical and popular acclaim by New York's highly regarded Circle Repertory Company, the play probes unerringly into the unsettled lives of its characters and finds the compassion and simple humanity which circumstances have driven within them. "AMULETS becomes gripping and disturbing... the characters are invariably fascinating... " - NY Times. "... absorbing and vividly written study of mid-50s lower-middle-class alienation and emotional hunger... it's the work of a true playwright." - Variety. "This is the play Williams or Inge would have written if they had been born 30 years later and avoided the sexual repression of their times." - BackStage.
