Description
(1974 Pulitzer Prize for Biography or Autobiography) The most lauded playwright in American history, Eugene O'Neill won four Pulitzer Prizes and the Nobel Prize for a body of work that includes The Iceman Cometh, Mourning Becomes Electra, Desire Under the Elms, and Long Day's Journey into Night. The son of a famous actor and a quiet, morphine-addicted mother, O'Neill experienced alcoholism, a collapse of his health, and bouts of mania while still a young man, and his tumultuous life served as the source for much of his art. First published in 1968 and 1973, Louis Sheaffer's magisterial two-volume study of O'Neill "is not only the foremost portrait of the artist but also one of the most stunning literary biographies, period" (Library Journal).

"Should take its place in every library of those seriously interested in American theater, literature, and consciousness."NYTimes

"A model of what a biography should be ... [the book] ought to prove spellbinding for O'Neill buffs and theater addicts, and scarcely less so for readers who enjoy biographies."Publishers Weekly
