A Front Row Seat: Sala Udin Remembers August Wilson

Christopher Bell


Lifelong friend of August Wilson, Sala Udin, shares his memories of knowing the playwright from their childhood in the Hill District until the dramatist's death in 2005. Written as a narrative, Udin's account of his friendship with August Wilson offers a unique glimpse into Wilson's development as a writer and a poignant look into the playwright's affection for his hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
