Lovers by Brian Friel, Paperback | Barnes & Noble®
I would like to express my thanks to all the contributors to this book – for their wholehearted support of the enterprise, for delivering on time and for the quality of their contributions. I am grateful to Richard Pine and to Frank McGuinness for being invaluable sounding boards to me throughout. I wish to thank Ray Ryan, my commissioning editor at Cambridge University Press; the three anonymous readers for their endorsement of what I proposed and for some invaluable suggestions; and to Maartje Scheltens at Cambridge for easing the final stages of delivery. Thanks are also due to Michael Colgan, Marie Rooney and Jenni Rope at the Gate Theatre, Dublin, for advice and support; and to Lyn Haill and her staff in the Print and Publications section of the Royal National Theatre, London, for all of their help. Special thanks are due to Brian Friel himself, in particular for his kind permission to reproduce unpublished material from the Friel Archive at the National Library of Ireland in two of the chapters. My final acknowledgment is my greatest, to my wife Katy Hayes, who helped me in so many ways to see this through.
