 +<​blockquote>​Laura Bush once told an interviewer that her favorite book is The Brothers Karamazov. In 2003, with America in the throes of the Iraq War, Tony Kushner wrote a short play inspired by this news. It depicts the First Lady reading the Grand Inquisitor section of Dostoevsky’s novel to an unlikely audience: Iraqi children wearing pajamas in heaven.</​blockquote>​
