about this book

Stanford professor Anna Deavere Smith has performed her hard-hitting, sociologically probing "documentary theater" stage pieces Fires in the Mirror and Twilight on campuses and in theaters nationwide, receiving critical praise and accolades from every quarter. Available here in book form with complete text and photographs, the productions document changes in racial identity and multiculturalism in America by portraying dozens of real-life people commenting in their own words on the watershed events they experienced or took part in.Twilight contains the verbatim opinions and impressions nearly 200 people involved in the Los Angeles riots of 1992: Korean shop owners, gang members, actress Anjelica Houston, Angela King (Rodney King's aunt), truck driver Reginald Denny, mayor Tom Bradley and ex-police chief Daryl Gates.
