About The Book

Patrick Marber’s Howard Katz has been hailed as “a gripping piece of work” (Sunday Telegraph). This haunting play is centered on its title character, a hard-as-nails talent agent now down on his luck. Marber traces the story of the mighty Katz through almost dreamlike flashbacks, capturing a man in free fall, while he determinedly clings to life. Marber’s tale is a universal one about the search for faith and the power of love to touch even the most hardened soul.
