William Davies King is professor of theater at the University of California at Santa Barbara and is the editor of The Eugene O’Neill Review. Acclaimed as one of the greatest actresses of her generation, Jessica Lange is a two-time Academy Award winner and has dazzled the screen with over thirty credits to her name.

Editorial Reviews

Long Day’s Journey is O’Neill’s last, most realized play, a grand act of mercy upon his family and his own life.”—Arthur Miller
