|Thornton Wilder: A Life|
by Penelope Niven
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."
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.
