Mr. Gibson wrote among other plays: 'Two For the Seesaw,' 'Golda,' and with Clifford Odets, 'Golden Boy.' He lists 'A Mass for the Dead' as a chronicle. He has written other plays, poems and chronicles as well.
It is an old book and I am not really enjoying it very much. However, the woman who recommended it to me said it's her favorite book of all time. I guess it would be up to the reader to judge the text.
I have not read other books by William Gibson so am not an expert on his writing. I find that it drags. He is writing about his family, so from a historical perspective it gives a great picture of that era. (The Depression years). Hus writing is excellent, but I am finding the story line boring. It is not in the same caliber of 'The Grapes of Wrath' in my estimation.
