Genre: Fiction, Comedy
Reviewed by Israel Drazin - February 9, 2011
This excellent comedic play is about an impending marriage between "a member of the great and good middle class with one of the vicious and corrupt aristocracy (which would be) a misalliance." It is also about the differences (misalliance) between parents and children, and between the leadership of the English people, people with no leadership skills, and the people they are controlling. Two adventurers appear in Hypatia's mundane life, a young man and young woman. Hypatia's father tries to seduce the woman and she tries to seduce the man. Then a stranger appears with a gun saying he came to kill Hypatia's father.
Misalliance is available from Read How You Want, an on-demand publisher that makes books available in a variety of formats including Braille, DAISY, and five different large print formats.
