So many people know who Wallace Shawn is without knowing who he is. The guy who says "Inconceivable!" from Princess Bride. That's probably where most people know him from. "My Dinner With Andre"? That rings a few bells. Most people don't know what a brilliant and thoughtful writer Wallace Shawn is. I was first introduced to his writing with his play, The Designated Mourner. His latest, Night Thoughts, is a great introduction to the writing of this "actor." Mr. Shawn muses about many things in this quick read. Who we are, why we are, our motivations, all the philosophical musings one might ponder in that space when we lay our head on the pillow but our restless mind wanders away from sleep. Give Wallace Shawn an hour or two of your time, and he'll give you a lot to think about.
