"I had this professor in college named John Glavin, and he was my screenwriting and playwriting professor. One of the things he said that I think has had a profound effect on my life was, [When you don't like a] book or play or movie, the onus is actually on you to...investigate what's going on and maybe challenge yourself to dig deeper into the material and learn from it.' [It] actually is good to follow. It's good to learn how to follow and listen." --Mike Birbiglia in The New York Times ("Great Moments in Inspiration," September 27, 2012). He is a Comedian, Actor, Filmmaker, Sleepwalk with Me, Don't Think Twice. "A captivating, quirky book to warm and melt the chilly, hard hearts of sophisticates: Glavin is part travel writer, part Shakespeare scholar, part novelist--and the mixture ends up a delight. Just turn the page and there you are, a knowledgeable, entertaining Italianophile." --Fay Weldon, CBE, Novelist and Writer. The Life and Loves of a She Devil, Upstairs Downstairs, Life for Christine. "Everything I know about drama I learned from John Glavin." --Jonah Nolan, Writer of The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, and Creator of Person of Interest and Westworld.
