With wordsmithery and an alma mater in common, the authors in Bright Pages: Yale Writers, 1701-2001 cover genres and topics ranging from an essay on a generation's guilt over evading the Vietnam draft (Christopher Buckley), to a poem about Sara Baartman, the so-called Hottentot Venus (Elizabeth Alexander), to a book excerpt about the experiences of several survivors of Hiroshima (John Hersey), to scenes from a play about a young woman's encounters with the opposite sex at the height of hippiedom (Wendy Wasserstein). Compiled by poet J.D. McClatchy (On Wings of Song), editor of the Yale Review, this far-ranging anthology will make the New Haven crowd proud. Boola boola. (Apr.)
