Goodnight, Wendy Wasserstein

The talented playwright who is the author of "The Heidi Chronicles" passed away on Monday. She died of lymphoma at the age of 55. Although I don't really enjoy her plays, I respect her writing for the talent she had.

CNN says:

Her writing was known for its sharp, often wry observations about what women had to do to succeed in a world dominated by men.

I think that it's a little too simple of a description. One thing that I really respected about her writing was her careful eye towards the wealthy. Her writing had a wit to it that pointed out the flaws of the rich, all while carrying a healthy respect. She will be missed.
