Timebends a life

Arthur Miller's plays have held the world's stages for almost half a century. Among them are Death of a Salesman, The Crucible, and All My Sons, which have been read and performed countless times across the world. His memoir, Timebends, shows that the life of the man is as compelling as his plays. With passion, wit and candour, Miller recalls his childhood in Harlem and Brooklyn in the 1920s and the Depression; his successes and failures in the theatre and in Hollywood; the formation of his political beliefs that, two decades later, brought him into confrontations with the House Committee of Un-American Activities; and his later work on behalf of human rights as the president of PEN International. He writes with astonishing perception and tenderness of Marilyn Monroe, his second wife, as well as the host of famous and infamous that have intersected with his adventurous life. Timebends is Miller's love letter to the twentieth century: its energy, its humour, its chaos and moral struggles.

  • ""Esperada con curiosidad y publicada en todo el mundo con gran recibimiento de público y crítica, ésta es la autobiografía del hombre que escribió La muerte de un viajante, una de las mejores obras de teatro norteamericanas de nuestro siglo, y del hombre que durante toda su vida pública se enfrentó a las presiones del stablishment, como lo demostró durante la "caza de brujas" del general McCarthy. Nacido en 1915, un año después del estallido de la primera guerra mundial, tenía 14 años cuando ocurrió el crack de Wall Street, era un adolescente durante la Represión y un estudiante bajo el New Deal. La historia de Miller, contada con una extraordinaria viveza y habilidad, es la historia del siglo veinte en los Estados Unidos, la historia de un brillante intelectual que, con Broadway a sus pies y Marilyn Monroe a su lado durante unos años de su vida, parecía reconciliar opuestos imposibles convirtiendo en realidad el sueño americano." --Descripción del editor."@es
  • "The author of All My Sons, Death of a Salesman, The Crucible, A View from the Bridge, After the Fall, Incident at Vichy, The Price, The American Clock and other plays that successfully continue to hold the stage throughout the world has led an unusually eventful and richly dramatic life. Miller tells his story and tells it wonderfully, with insight, humor, passion and candor, displaying throughout the largeness of spirit that has made him one of the most admired of living writers."
