This winner of the 1978 Pulitzer Prize uses a card game as a metaphor for life. Weller Martin and Fonsia Dorsey discover they both dislike their nursing home and enjoy gin rummy, so they begin to play and to reveal intimate details of their lives. Soon their secrets become weapons used against one another. “A thoroughly entertaining lesson in the fine art of theatrical finesse. The closest thing the theatre offers to a duel at 10 paces.” – The New York Times
