LETTERS
"Pride in Proof"


I want to congratulate fellow U of C alum David Auburn ("Burden of Proof," December/00) on his Pulitzer Prize win for his play Proof! (See "Chicago Journal," -Ed.) I was privileged to meet David at a book-signing here in Manhattan, and he was extremely friendly, down-to-earth, and even a little shy about his own success. I had a good time sharing memories of student life and Hyde Park with him. Clearly, there is no one more deserving of the prestigious Pulitzer than this modest, brilliantly talented young writer.

In profiling David Auburn, the Magazine missed a chance to tout an important Chicago connection. He is the son of Mark S. Auburn, AM'68, PhD'71.-Ed.
