". . . McClure and Rice have given us by far the most thorough and therefore most useful Inge bibliography to date. . . . Their book has other features that add to its value: a helpful introduction and Inge chronology, two appendices (one describing the Inge Collection at Independence Community College, the other describing the annual festival held there), and an index. The volume belongs in any library where serious research in American popular culture, American literature, and American drama is likely to occur." - Ralph F. Voss in South Atlantic Review
