David Rabe discusses his career as both a novelist and a playwright. His play “A Question of Mercy,” is currently playing at Atlantic State 2. Based on the journal of Dr. Richard Selzer, it tells the story of a doctor trying to help a young man dying of AIDS end his life, rather than suffering alive. Rabe’s latest novel, Girl by the Road at Night, is his first work of fiction set in Vietnam.
