The revised and expanded e-book edition.

Order 'Most writers don't know that actors are never better than in the pauses or in the subtext. They give them too many words. In a play, words are parentheses to the silences. They're useful for the actors, but only that; they aren't the whole story. I always work by cutting down. If I didn't have people to stop me, I'd probably cut everything. I'd be down to 12 pages! I'm writing something now; I've got 50 pages and it already feels finished. Fifty isn't enough, so I'll go to 100, but it's very, very concentrated. I can't write long.'

-- Yasmina Reza
