BookLife review of THE RISK THEATRE MODEL OF TRAGEDY: GAMBLING, DRAMA, AND THE UNEXPECTED. THE GOOD: "Wong's hardy debut book of literary criticism succeeds in presenting a challenge to the famous playwrights of yesteryear while providing a compelling framework for today's storytellers." THE BAD: "Readers opening it in hopes of a quick explanation of tragedy in drama may find it initially slow going." THE UGLY: "Though the language is dry, dense, and highly technical--leavened only by the occasional humorous quotation--this is nonetheless an excellent compilation of arguments that will stimulate creative minds."

Request that your local library carry this book and decide for yourself: is risk theatre a legitimate new theory of drama?
