Summary:
"Best known for the hit musicals West Side Story and Gypsy, Arthur Laurents began his career writing socially minded plays such as Home of the Brave and Time of the Cuckoo. He also garnered impressive credits as a screenwriter (The Way We Were) and stage director (La Cage aux Folles). Such a varied professional life makes for absorbing reading, as was first unleashed in his lively 2000 autobiography, Original Story By. Laurents passed away in early 2011 but not before writing The Rest of the Story, in which he reveals all that had happened in his life since Original Story By, filled with the wisdom he gained in growing older and a new perspective brought on by his experience of deep personal loss, including the death of his longtime companion, Tom Hatcher"--From publisher description.
