Inside this Book – Tracey Letts is the son of Billie Letts who wrote Where the Heart Is and other novels, all taking place in Oklahoma. Following in his mother’s footsteps, Tracey Letts became a playwright, most notably of August: Osage County, which won both the Pulitzer Prize for drama and Tony Award in 2009. In Osage County, the dysfunctional Weston family has gathered to assist their mother Violet after their father Beverly’s funeral. Premiering at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theater, Osage County is a gritty family drama. Beverly and Violet Weston lived in a small Oklahoma town southeast of Tulsa. Beverly had taught in the Tulsa University literature department for nearly forty years after publishing a stellar poetry collection. Yet, he allowed the early fame to get to him, often at the expense of his wife and three daughters. Over the course of their marriage, Beverly and Violet separated three times to clear the air, yet inevitably reconciled. As a result, Violet became a pill popper and the three daughters carried baggage for their entire adult lives.
Inside this book –August: Osage County PDF Book by Tracy Letts – There is no doubt that “August: Osage County” is a great American play. Reading it one instantly gets the same feeling you get from the best O’Neil and Williams dramas. And like those plays, it is saturated with anger and bitterness and love, and all those complex emotions that make us human. Tracy Letts has written the text in a very simple direct style that flows easily, and the structure of the piece fills out nicely. It opens with a prologue that is worth going back and rereading after getting about halfway through, just to see what new resonance it has now that the reader has more information. Written in three acts, the same structure that many great American plays seem to share, the first act pulls you in with an interesting ensemble and plotlines that hint at more under the surface. The second act features a family dinner for the ages and violently and relentlessly will propel the reader to its conclusion. The third act contains more scenes, seems to have a quicker pace, and really punches the reader in the gut with many moments that come up in quick succession.
