From the Publisher:
The definitive memoir of Arthur Miller?the famous playwright of The Crucible, All My Sons, Death of a Salesman, A View from the Bridge, and other plays?Timebends reveals Miller?s incredible trajectory as a man and a writer.
|Born in 1915, Miller grew up in Harlem in the 1920s and 1930s, developed leftist political convictions during the Great Depression, achieved moral victory against McCarthyism in the 1950s, and became president of PEN International near the end of his life, fighting for writers? freedom of expression. Along the way, his prolific output established him as one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century?he wrote twenty-two plays, various screenplays, short stories, and essays, and won the Pulitzer Prize in 1949 for Death of a Salesmanand the New York Drama Critics Circle Award in 1947 for All My Sons. Miller also wrote the screenplay for The Misfits, Marilyn Monroe?s final film.
|This memoir also reveals the incredible host of notables that populated his life, including Marilyn Monroe, Elia Kazan, Clark Gable, Sir Laurence Olivier, John F. Kennedy, and Mikhail Gorbachev. Leaving behind a formidable reputation in the worlds of theater, cinema, and politics, Arthur Miller died in 2005 but his memoir continues his legacy.
Author Bio
Arthur Miller
Arthur Miller, the son of a coat manufacturer and a schoolteacher, grew up in the Midwood section of Brooklyn. After graduating from high school he worked at an auto supply warehouse. He graduated from the University of Michigan in 1938; he also worked as a mouse tender in the university labs, and a night editor for the "Michigan Daily". His plays began winning awards in 1936 and in 1938 he won the Theatre Guild Award; he has also received several New York Drama Critics Circle Awards, the Pulitzer Prize, a Tony Award, and has served as president of PEN. In 1940, Miller married Mary Grace Slattery. They had two children, Jane and Robert, but the marriage ended in divorce. In 1956 he married Marilyn Monroe; that same year Miller was called to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee. When he refused to name names, he was held in contempt of Congress, and it wasn't for another two and a half years that his conviction was overturned on a technicality. In 1962, after his marriage to Monroe also ended in divorce, Miller married Ingeborg Morath; they have two children, Rebecca and Daniel. He was honored as the Distinguished Contributor to American Letters by the National Book Foundation in 2001.

Praise

Nation
"...[A]n imaginative account of the author's life and an affirmation of it....Miller's ambitions from the outset have been to offer something more urgent than the diversion of meringue in the face--in the face of war and injustice." - Steven G. Kellman 11/13/1995
