Piece Comment

Review of Glasnost

This piece was beautifully done. Contentwise, I loved how seamlessly the writer went between her own observations and her parents' voices. The translations were done very well, allowing her parents' personalities and feelings to come through. I liked the touch of humour throughout for what must have been very difficult. I would have liked one more anecdote from those 2 years of adjustment after the writer came out - an odd comment made by her parents, a visit to the Castro, etc. Maybe her parents generally quiet about it, keeping their thoughts to themselves?

Productionwise, excellent. The rhythm, the pacing, the voice were all easy to follow, and drew me in right away.

Nicely done!! If this hasn't already been licensed, it definitely should. Several times.
