About Susan Dworkin

If you wanted to cite a single central theme for Susan Dworkin's many books and plays, it would probably be "political awakening." Her book THE VIKING IN THE WHEAT FIELD is about the crusading seed banker, Dr. Bent Skovmand, and the future of world food security. Her play THE FARM BILL (described by one director as "comic and scathing") chronicles the political rebellion of a low level clerk at the mammoth U.S. Department of Agriculture. THE NAZI OFFICER'S WIFE, which Susan wrote with its real-life heroine, Edith Hahn Beer, tells a story of love and terror in the Third Reich and is now an international best seller. MAKING TOOTSIE, a classic film study, investigates how Dustin Hoffman, Sydney Pollack and Jessica Lange made the great comedy of a man living for a while as a woman (talk about political awakening!) STOLEN GOODS is about a young Armenian-American woman who takes over her father's printing business and learns just how much larceny lies out there in the real world. THE BOOK OF CANDY tells the tale of a privileged housewife who comes to realize how much of her good luck is based on the spoils of war. Susan's plays are often produced in New York and regional theatres. Among these are THE BAKING SONG, THE MIAMI DIG, THE OLD MEZZO and ALL DAY SUCKERS, a hilarious musical satire on health care. For ten years, she was a contributing editor at MS. MAGAZINE, interviewing celebrities like Meryl Streep, Whoopi Goldberg, Danny Glover, and Roseanne Barr Arnold.
