Playwright Wilson says he's dying

August Wilson, 60, one of America’s greatest playwrights, has told the Post-Gazette he is dying of liver cancer.

“It’s not like poker, you can’t throw your hand in,” he said by phone from Seattle. “I’ve lived a blessed life. I’m ready.” —Christopher RawsonPlaywright Wilson says he’s dying (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

I’ll be teaching Wilson’s Fences in my “Drama as Literature” class.
