Neil Simon was more than the writer whose work kept showing up in your high school Englidh textbook. Simon changed the ideas of what a comedic play could be. Pathos, poignancy, empathy, dealing with life’s changes, and looking back on your past. Simon’s work changed and grew as he changed. And in turn, so did we. Play after play, story after story, Neil Simon will always be out there. Which is all that any writer, or any human being, can ever hope for.
