The first play is a semi-autobiographical monologue, and the 1997 review on these pages observed that "black rage gets brilliantly illuminated in the quiet voice of a baker briskly kneading dough. He does it from habit now, he says to the narrator, but originally it was 'so I could go to bed each night knowing I hadn't killed anybody.' "
