O'Neill: life with Monte CristoUser Review - Book Verdict
When the Gelbs"former managing editor of the New York Times Arthur and Barbara (So Short a Take)"published the first full-scale biography of Eugene O!Neill in 1962, they had the advantage of having interviewed many people who were close to O!Neill, including his widow, Carlotta. However, they had neither access to archival resources now open to researchers nor the freedom to reveal many of the secrets they had uncovered. Thirty years later, they asked Applause Books to bring their book into print after a minor revision, which turned into a complete rewriting that made use of quite a bit of new information and a more mature understanding of their subject. This maturity is particularly evident in their examination of O!Neill!s mother and her relationship with him. The book is an excellent companion to Stephen Black!s Eugene O!Neill: Beyond Mourning and Tragedy (LJ 11/1/99), which employs a psychoanalytic approach in exploring some of the same archival material. Strongly recommended for all academic, public, and high school libraries; Volume 2 is scheduled for 2002."Susan L. Peters, Emory Univ. Lib., Atlanta, GA ...
Review: O'Neill PAUser Review - Goodreads
I read this the summer of 1977, while my boss was on a 3-week vacation. Immersing myself in the life of my favorite playwright, I was in the middle of trying to decide what to do with the rest of my life, now that I had given up acting. It was a difficult time.
