The 2016 book is Carey Perloff’s Beautiful Chaos: A Life in the Theater, published locally by City Lights Foundation Books. Perloff’s personal and professional journey—her life as a woman in a male-dominated profession, as a wife and mother, a playwright, director, producer, arts advocate, and citizen in a city erupting with enormous change.

She and her husband have two children: Alexandra, and Nicholas, best known as the electronic music producer Flaxo.
