Today's Washington Post contains an obituary of William M. Hoffman (1939-2017), a prolific writer best known for his 1985 Tony-nominated play "As Is" and for his libretto for John Corigliano's 1991 opera, "The Ghosts of Versailles."
I could have sworn our group had discussed "As Is," but we haven't. (We have discussed Larry Kramer's "The Normal Heart," which opened weeks after Hoffman's play.) If memory serves, I nominated it several years ago, but it didn't garner enough support to make the reading list—but I think I'll try again. Here is a sampling of other obits:
