Abstract:

"To achieve this portrait of the artist and the man, the award-winning drama critic and biographer Martin Gottfried masterfully draws on his interviews with those who have known Miller throughout his personal and professional life, on Miller's voluminous lifelong correspondence, and on the annotated scripts and notebooks that reveal Miller's creative process in stunning detail. From Miller's childhood and adolescence in Depression-era New York City to his formative college years in Michigan ... from the numerous early professional rejections to the 1947 play All My Sons that established him as a voice to be reckoned with ... from his heroic defiance of the House Un-American Activities Committee during the McCarthy years to his most unlikely pairing with Marilyn Monroe ... from political and social activism on the world stage to an extraordinary professional vitality (Miller is still writing plays, and stage revivals and film adaptations of his classics proliferate): here is a dazzling biography - a literary event of the first order."--Jacket.
