From the Back Cover:

"The last play that Eugene O'Neill wrote, A Moon for the Misbegotten was never successful during his lifetime, but has since become recognized as one of his greatest theatrical achievements -- a unique blend of comedy, tragedy, autobiography and imagination.

"Everything about it is so tremendous that it reduces almost every other modern drama to virtual pettiness."

-- Richard Watts

"A beautiful play, possibly O'Neill's best....The free creative impulse is allowed more play here than in the directly autobiographical Long Day's Journey into Night....Life is made on the wing rather than painstakingly remembered. It is an honest life and, for O'Neill, an unusually lyric one; the crafty, the damned and the forgiving breathe."

-- Walter Kerr
