Behrman was called "Berrie" by
family members and dear friends.
A biographical approach to Behrman's work,
stressing themes of upward social mobility, Jewish identity,
and comic vision. Reed judges The Cold Wind and the Warm
to be his best play, and his best essays to be superior to
his dramatic output.
