Edward Albee On Loving Someone Younger

Albee, whose “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” is in previews on Broadway, isn’t going gently into that good night. At 84, having had open-heart surgery in June, he’s still suffused with strong opinions. In this new interview, he talks about his work, of course, but also about his attempt a couple of years ago to kindle a love affair with a man 60 years his junior. Albee said: “I knew it was absolutely foolish. He’s too young. He’s too this, he’s too that, he’s all sorts of stuff…It wasn’t going to be a great, wonderful sexual relationship. But, wow, wasn’t that interesting when I thought it was! Isn’t kidding yourself fun?”
