About the Anthology
ed. Christopher Bigsby. London: Methuen, 2005
“Remembering Arthur Miller is a celebration of a life committed to writing, to upholding liberty and to speaking out against injustice. Over eighty pieces from actors, writers, directors, reviewers and others who knew or worked with Miller, attest to his enduring legacy.” The scope of Miller’s life and work is heralded by stories from Alan Ayckbourn, Dustin Hoffman, Vanessa Redgrave, Eli Wallach, Gene Wilder, Carlos Fuentes, Nadine Gordimer, Ronald Harwood, Harold Pinter, Tom Stoppard and dozens of others whose lives were touched by Miller.
“Miller was more than just a playwright and in particular, did a wonderful and courageous job for imprisoned writers around the world as President of International PEN. Joanne Leedom-Ackerman pays a fine tribute on this part of the writer’s life…”

“Remembering Arthur Miller”
I met Arthur Miller only a few times, once sitting with him at a dinner in New York and another time at English PEN’s Writers’ Day in London, where he arrived having forgotten his talk and improvised a brilliant presentation. He was one of the grand writers in PEN.
