O'Neill, Eugenelocked

O'Neill, Eugenelocked

  • Philip Parry


Eugene Gladstone O'Neill was born into a theatrical household on 16 October 1888 in a hotel room in New York City, and died in Boston, also in a hotel room, on 27 November 1953. Into the intervening sixty-five years, he managed to pack three marriages and a fair amount of marital infidelity, a lot of drinking, and an immense amount of writing. Excess is always dazzling, but it is O'Neill's writing that matters most.
