"Not a peep show or a celebrity gossip fest, this book is [an] ... investigation of the emotional knots that ensnared one of our most important playwrights ... O'Neill was the flame women were drawn to--all, that is, except his mother, who never let him forget he was unwanted. [The book] follows O'Neill through his great successes, the failures he was able to shrug off, and the long eclipse, a twelve-year period in which ... nothing he wrote was produced. But ahead lay his greatest achievements: The Iceman Cometh and Long Day's Journey into Night. Both were ahead of their time and both received lukewarm receptions. It wasn't until after his death that his widow ... began a ... campaign to restore his reputation"-- Provided by publisher.
