worthwhile." -- The Daily Bruin

Heartfelt, whimsical, tough writings framed in a personal journal, Labor Day, 2004 through Easter, 2005 
by Glenn Hopkins
Philadelphia, PA –   Xlibris in cooperation with Donatello Press is pleased to announce the publication of Slim Volume,  Trade Paperback;  219 pages; 978-1-4363-4870-6
Cloth Hardback;  217 pages; 978-1-4363-4871-3

Bisexual Los Angeles playwright, Green Party activist, muck-raker, educator, Methodist and “Radical Faerie” Glenn Hopkins struts his stuff in a memoir first started in Austin, Texas forty years ago.

Explosively controversial research on the deliberate origin of AIDS, loving tributes to his father and mentors Ernst Bulova, Ray Bradbury, and Mort Sahl, songs, poems, play excerpts, lovingly 'outing' a U.S. First Lady Mrs. Roosevelt (a one-woman 30 minute play now also available in French, Spanish, Farsi, Japanese, Korean, and Czech and the basis of a new feature film, the first to be made from Hopkins two dozen plays,  Mrs. Roosevelt ) ...all this comes to the reader along with politics and fervent prayer within the framework of a real-time journal kept from Labor Day, 2004 to Easter Sunday, 2005.   
The quick-witted, but sentimental avante-guarde memoir features several alternative beginnings, yet gets its work done in 219 pages.  You'll probably feel like Gerry Gardner of radio KCME, who said in her broadcast review of Hopkins' internationalist play ...all in the same boat in 1989: 

 "...moments of genius...I can't stop thinking about it!"

         Hopkins’ writing for the stage has been:

“outrageous...refreshing... intriguing... important...worthwhile.”
