When I started taking the train to work, I was really excited about how much reading I was going to get done. I happily imagined a future in which I've read every book I'd ever wanted to read -- and all thanks to the LA Metro! People would talk about the classics and I'd airily reply, "Why, yes, I've read it." I'd get a forward asking me to check all of the books I'd read, and I'd be able to check all 100 books on the list. I would be so well-read!

Well, the reality wasn't quite what I'd imagined...more

This is an interesting book and yet, it isn't something I would recommend to someone unless they really love Miller's work. Arthur is a fantastic playwright and he writes a pretty good essay as well. Many of the pieces revolve around either drama or politics and both are worthwhile. If you're interested in learning more about Miller's experiences and thoughts on drama, you will enjoy this book. Otherwise, you may want to find something that will be more interesting and rewarding since there are...more
Miller's writing is amazing; love everything he writes, but this book isnt one you can curl up with and get lost in. It is a book of essays, so I would recommend reading this book while you are reading something else. Loved the essay on returning war veterans and the Nazi trials!
I rated it a 4 for the quality of the writing. Some of the stories are compelling and complex while others are less so.
