Summary
  • "Correspondence between playwright-teacher Sarah Ruhl and poet-cancer patient Max Ritvo, in which the student becomes the teacher"--
  • In 2012, Sarah Ruhl was a distinguished author and playwright, twice a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Max Ritvo, a student in her playwriting class at Yale University, was an exuberant, opinionated, and highly gifted poet. He was also in remission from pediatric cancer. Over the next four years{u2014}in which Ritvo{u2019}s illness returned and his health declined, even as his productivity bloomed{u2014}the two exchanged letters that spark with urgency, humor, and the desire for connection. Reincarnation, books, the afterlife as an Amtrak quiet car, good soup: in Ruhl and Ritvo{u2019}s exchanges, all ideas are fair, nourishing game, shared and debated in a spirit of generosity and love. 2We{u2019}ll always know one another forever, however long ever is,3 Ritvo writes. 2And that{u2019}s all I want{u2014}is to know you forever.3 Studded with poems and songs, Letters from Max is a deeply moving portrait of a friendship, and a shimmering exploration of love, art, mortality, and the afterlife. -- {u2021}c From publisher's description
