In the last few years alone they have included the play RED LIGHT WINTER, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, as well as a fine small film he wrote and directed, Winter Passing, and a witty coming-of-age novel, Year of Endless Sorrows.   AMERICAN SLIGO…bolsters his reputation as a writer…   …as a writer he veers in a few unexpected directions, with new characters popping up, and others revealing surprising layers….”Caryn James, The New York Times    “…AMERICAN SLIGO, his latest attack on the moral values and social conventions that define the American way of life….…Rapp hits his stride in the razor-cut pieces of dialogue…”Marilyn Stasio, Variety
