About Book

'A consistently enthralling work.' Spectator

'Absorption in a male ethos and unease about feminine dominion, whether amatory or domestic, give Miller's plays their special colour, force and intensity. Martin Gottfried's enthralling and well-researched book makes us appreciate this afresh ... Like its subject, Arthur Miller: A Life is an uncomfortable, challenging work, forbidding us any bien-pensant ease, and we should be grateful for it.' Times Literary Supplement

'A fascinating book ... Gottfried provides a vivid panorama of the city's left-wing writing milieu into which the young Miller graduated in the 1930s.' Observer

'Remarkable and revelatory... a definitive biography.' Literary Review
