Our tender, sharp-eared cultural chronicler - Horton Foote

A toast to one of my favorite American playwrights - Horton Foote - our tender and sharp-eared cultural historian, our Chekhov - who died yesterday at 92 year old. I wrote about him here. I have acted in one of his plays, directed two others, and worked on one of his films. Rent his marvelous A Trip to Bountiful or read A Habitation of Dragons if you want to join me in celebrating his beautiful dramatic and literary accomplishments.

Here's how The New York Times remembers him, and the Los Angeles Times, and here's a profile from 2007.
