Yyyyyyyeahhhhh, so this is pretty much the play version of a Norman Rockwell painting, right? I mean...terribly sentimental and conservative and folksy? Is there something more in his other plays? I should have read Skin of our Teeth, I heard there was a dinosaur.I can't remember anything I've read ...

Technically, I read this by watching the movie/play but I was absent for many days and I failed the test in English class FML. I'll make sure to read this time.

I kinda hated this book, I didn't like reading it as a play but that's just me. But I also found the whole thing a bit boring.

I went on a Wilder tear reading this, The Skin of Our Teeth: A Play, and a one act called "Infancy" that I dearly loved. Wonderful plays, full of wit and humanity.
