"The Baptism and The Toilet are two of LeRoi Jones' earliest plays. The Baptism, a viciously comic assault on diverse hypocrisies--religious, social, sexual--which inform contemporary American life, and The Toilet, a tough, relentless study of tenderness crushed and destroyed by an adolescent code of violence, comprise a pair of the most powerful one-act plays to be produced in New York in years."--Back cover.
