NOW AVAILABLE: Large Print Edition of Mark David Major’s The Persistence of Memory and Other Plays


ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI – Carousel Books recently re-issued The Persistence of Memory and Other Plays by Mark David Major in a Large Print Edition featuring a new cover design, which is now available for purchase on Amazon, Kindle, CreateSpace, and other online booksellers. Twenty years ago, Major wrote three plays in a burst of creative activity over a three-year period. Since then, these plays have been waiting to be revisited by the author and discovered by a new generation of readers and patrons of the theatre. For the first time, The Persistence of Memory, The Truth of Glances, and Song of My Childhood are presented together in this large print format, updated and revised by the author with Preludes by the original cast leads, Tena L. Griffin and Rory S. Beelek, production photographs from the 1992 run of The Persistence of Memory at the Historic Miner’s Institute Theatre, and playwright’s commentary and character studies from the Actors Editions of the plays.


Major was born and raised in the Tower Grove neighborhood of St. Louis and attended Collinsville High School on the east side of the river. He is a graduate of Clemson University in South Carolina and University College London in the United Kingdom. Major’s plays perfectly embody the didactic nature of Generation X at its best and worst on the themes of romantic love and emotional honesty. It is characterized by a purity of perspective tinted with a cynicism wise beyond its years and a raw emotionalism carefully veiled under a mask of social indifference. These plays give voice to an entire generation, the children of a revolution. The Persistence of Memory and Other Plays: Large Print Edition is a 402-page with black and white photographs published by Carousel Books, available for purchase from the following retailers:
