More About the Author

Arthur Miller (1915-2005) was born in New York City in 1915 and studied at the University of Michigan. During his lifetime he was celebrated as the pre-eminent playwright of his generation and won numerous awards for his work including two New York Drama Critics' Circle Awards, two Emmy awards and three Tony Awards for his plays, as well as a Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement. His 1949 play Death of a Salesman was the first play to scoop all three major US awards: the New York Critics Circle Award, a Tony Award for Best Author and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. His many plays include All My Sons, Death of a Salesman, The Crucible, A View from the Bridge, A Memory of Two Mondays, After the Fall, Incident at Vichy, The Price, The Creation of the World and Other Business, and The American Clock; later plays include Broken Glass, Resurrection Blues and the aptly-titled Finishing the Picture. His other published work includes the novel Focus, The Misfits which was filmed in 1960, two collections of short stories, the memoir Timebends and various volumes of non-fiction including three books in collaboration with his wife, photographer Inge Morath.

Product Description

Review

'This collection reveals a maturing talent that never stopped growing and evolving' Sunday Times 'What makes reading the book feel like gaining privileged access to Miller is that we constantly appear to be getting glimpses of the private doubts behind the bracing certainties - or, for some critics, the preachiness - of Miller's public life and plays ... a fascinating and salutary companion piece to his stirring public utterances. ****' Daily Telegraph 'Whether exploring the anxieties of childhood and separation, as in the award-winning I Don't Need You Any More, or examining the weight of past relationships on present ones, as in Homely Girl, A Life, Miller manages to be both succinct and descriptively bold' Financial Times 'This volume of stories is an essential addition to the body of Arthur Miller's work, but it is more than that: it is an arresting self-portrait, unmediated by directors, actors, gossip columnists or biographers. The only thing wrong with it is that there isn't more of it' Guardian

Format: Paperback
I very nearly didn't get past the first story 'I Don't Need You Anymore'. This is a story without a story, no beginning, middle or ending. It tries to explore the mind of a five year old who stumbles across a secret of the mother and knows that the father must not be told. Of the child's fantasies which the elders in the family will laugh at. I did not understand the reaction to the child saying 'I don't need you anymore'. All children say something like this, we parents just inwardly laugh.
Luckily I continued to read past this episode and found the remaining stories, without exception, brilliant. A variety of themes, from performing in front of Hitler to a man's obsessiveness which led to virtual ruin.
This book is going onto my 'To be read again' list

Format: Hardcover
A selection of beautifully crafted short stories - succinct writing interspersed with haunting lines like, for example 'the anarchy of abandon, the lust for oblivion' (The Prophecy). Most are sombre in tone but all definitely offer food for thought - and reflection. Presence: Collected Stories: The Collected Stories of Arthur Miller
