Ed Bullins: Twelve Plays and Selected Writings brings together the most significant and provocative plays, fiction, essays, and letters of one of the most important playwrights in the U.S., African-American, and world dramatic traditions. Bullins was a crucial figure of the Black Arts Movement of the 60s and 70s that included writers Amiri Baraka, Larry Neal, Lorenzo Thomas, Sonia Sanchez, and others. This selection of Bullins's work displays his audacious experimentation with dramatic genre, his foundational and historic statements about African-American dramatic writing, and his role as political activist inside the theater world and out. Focusing on the most significant period of his long and still lively career, the anthology includes his signature plays: ""Clara's Ole Man"", ""In the Wine Time"", and ""The Fabulous Miss Marie""; the new, unpublished Harlem Diva; as well as performance pieces, fiction, essays, and letters, including his groundbreaking essays on black theater and a long excerpt from his scandalous novel ""The Reluctant Rapist"".
