TCR Remembers Penelope Niven, author of books on Thornton Wilder and James Earl Jones

Thornton Wilder: A Life
by Penelope Niven
The Committee Room notes with sadness the death of Penelope Niven, biographer of playwright and novelist Thornton Wilder (Thornton Wilder: A Life). Niven died unexpectedly on August 28, 2014. At the time of her death, Niven was working on further Wilder projects, including a book titled Wilder on Writing.

In early 2013, Niven generously gave an engaging and in-depth interview to TCR in regard to the recently published Thornton Wilder: A Life.

Kirkus Reviews called Thornton Wilder: A Life "satisfying and insightful...a perceptive, indispensable portrait of a productive and restlessly intellectual life" and the Boston Globe praised it as "a sweeping look into the life of a man who left an indelible mark on the American theater...a vital work of scholarship."



Co-written by
Penelope Niven
Niven beautifully sums up Wilder's writings as a search for answers to the fundamental questions -- "How do you live? How do you bear the unbearable? How do you handle the various dimensions of love, of faith, of the human condition? How do universal elements forge every unique, individual life?"

Among Niven's other theater related work is Voices and Silences, which she co-authored with the actor James Earl Jones. The book offers both an exploration of  Jones' personal history and a text on acting.

  6. This price never changes so long as you own the asset. On the other hand, market value is the current price at which you can sell an asset. For example, if you bought a house 10 years ago for $300,000, its book value for your entire period of ownership will remain $300,000. Read: Book Value vs Market Value
