Neil Simon "does not think against society; he thinks with it, observing and recording the sorrows and deliriums of the middle class, like a sort of swami of tsuris," writes John Lahr.
"No playwright in Broadway’s long and raucous history has so dominated the boulevard as the softly astringent [Neil] Simon," writes John Lahr. "For almost half a century, his comedies have offered light at the end of whatever dark tunnel America has found itself in. ... He does not think against society; he thinks with it, observing and recording the sorrows and deliriums of the middle class, like a sort of swami of tsuris. For him and for his avid audience, his plays work as a kind of non-friction."
