Good

Background

Good originated as a play, named among the “100 Best Plays of the Century” by the National Review; it premiered in London at the Donmar Warehouse in September of 1981. Starring Alan Howard as John Halder, the production drew critical raves, with the Daily Telegraph praising it as a “profound, involving work that forces members of the audience to consider what their own reaction would have been had they found themselves in Germany in the Thirties.” The play transferred to Broadway in 1982, which occasioned Frank Rich of the New York Times to call it “an undeniably provocative work…written with an intelligent, light touch in a most imaginative form.” Clive Barnes of the New York Post called it “triumphant, wonderful, and incandescent.”

About the author: Born in Glasgow in 1929, Taylor became one of the leading figures of London’s socially conscious artistic movement of the 60’s and 70’s. “Good” was the last of some 70 plays he produced but, tragically, Taylor died at the age of 52, just a week after the Donmar Warehouse debut. Time Magazine suggested the ambitions of the play, both thematically and stylistically, when it noted that “history is a nightmare into which the antihero of ‘Good’ sleepwalks.” Taylor himself made no bones about the seriousness of his work; “My principal themes,” he said “are the conflicts between man’s ideals and his limitations.”

THE GREAT GHOST RESCUE originated from the children’s novel of the same name by Eva Ibbotson. It was published in 1975 and as her first published novel set the template for a lifetime of innovative storytelling.

Author’s biography:Born in Vienna in 1925, Eva Ibbotson spent her early years shuttling between separated parents: her scientist father and her writer mother. She came to England after the Nazi seizure of power in 1933 with her father, a physiologist appointed to a post at Edinburgh University; her mother followed a year later. She attended Dartington Hall and studied physiology at university, where she met her husband, the ecologist Alan Ibbotson. They moved to Newcastle, where he taught at the university, and had four children; he died in 1998.

She has written eight novels for adults and nine for children, including Which Witch? (Carnegie Medal runner-up),The Secret of Platform 13 (Smarties Prize shortlist) and Monster Mission (Blue Peter Book Award shortlist). Journey to the River Sea, published in 2001, won the Smarties Prize gold medal 2003 and has sold more than 200,000 copies. Prior to publishing novels, Ibbotson also successfully wrote Linda Came Today (1962) for television aired on ITV.

Eva passed away at her home in Newcastle on October 20th 2010. Her final book, One Boy and His Dog, was published in May 2011 and has been nominated Children's Book of the Year at the 2011 Galaxy National Book Awards.
