About the Author:

Arthur Miller was born in New York City in 1915 and studied at the University of Michigan. His plays include All My Sons (1947), Death of a Salesman (1949), The Crucible (1953), A View from the Bridge and A Memory of Two Mondays (1955), After the Fall (1963), Incident at Vichy (1964), The Price (1968), The Creation of the World and Other Business (1972) and The American Clock. He has also written two novels, Focus (1945), and The Misfits, which was filmed in 1960, and the text for In Russia (1969), Chinese Encounters (1979), and In the Country (1977), three books of photographs by his wife, Inge Morath. More recent works include a memoir, Timebends (1987), and the plays The Ride Down Mt. Morgan (1991), The Last Yankee (1993), Broken Glass (1993), which won the Olivier Award for Best Play of the London Season, and Mr. Peter's Connections (1998). His latest book is On Politics and the Art of Acting. Miller was granted with the 2001 Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. He has twice won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, and in 1949 he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize.

Synopsis:

This volume brings together 50 essays by one of the most influential, literary, cultural and intellectual voices of the post-war period. Arranged chronologically, the writings provide a whirlwind tour of modern history: the Nuremberg trials, the Vietnam War, Watergate, the Balkan conflict and President Clinton's infamous liaison with Monica Lewinsky. Drawing on his own personal experience, Miller has written passionate discourses on censorship and the death penalty, as well as a Swiftian satire of the McCarthy Witch-Hunt trials. The book also provides an account of Miller's meeting with Nelson Mandela and an assessement of the lasting impact of the Depression on America. Yet also, here is Arthur Miller in a meditative, even playful, mood, evoking the subtle pleasures of gardening, or rembering the Brooklyn full of characters and practical jokers where he grew up.
