Dramatizes the relationship between an immigrant Jewish father and his son as they try to come to terms with the traditions of their culture and the new demands of being an American

From Library Journal:

Gardner is best known for such plays as A Thousand Clowns and I'm Not Rappaport . In Conversations with My Father , he enters the big leagues of American drama with an ambitious memory play in the tradition of the failed patriarch--a territory owned by Eugene O'Neill, Tennessee Williams, Edward Albee, Henry Miller, and others. What is special about this version of the story is its attempt to portray the New York Jewish experience from immigration to a form of assimilation. Covering 40 years of a family living in and running a Canal Street bar and grill, the play explores the destructive influence of a loud, frustrated, funny failure of a patriarch. Though Jewish, the story might easily be Irish or Italian. Beneath its ethnicity, its myth is American. Recommended.
