'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
