As a famous female playwright, Paula Vogel focuses on traditional American families. Hot ‘N’ Throbbing, How I Learned to Drive, and The Long Christmas Ride Home are her three representative works that mainly reveal the contradictions and education problems in traditional American families, clearly presenting the influence of husband-wife relationship and parent-child relationship on the growth and development of children. She bravely criticizes the so-called “ideal family” promoted by the American society, leading people to reflect on and pay more attention to the education problems in traditional American families.
