PRESENCE

PRESENCE

A moving, final collection of stories by Arthur Miller. Throughout his career as one of the foremost playwrights of the twentieth century, Arthur Miller wrote a remarkable series of highly regarded short stories, pieces that reveal the same profoundinsight, humanism, and empathy that are the hallmarks of his great dramatic works. Presence is a posthumous gathering of Miller’s last published fiction, a group of stories that appeared in The New Yorker, Harper’s, Esquire, and elsewhere. Bulldog describes a young teenager’s surprising first sexual experience while Presence relates a man’s encounter with a woman he has just seen making love on a beach. Beavers tells a haunting tale of nature, creation, and destruction. In The Performance, a Jewish tap dancer enthralls Hitler. The Bare Manuscript reveals a writer’s unusual methods to revive his muse, and, finally, The Turpentine Still presents a portrait of a man examining his legacy. Displaying the sureness of an artist in his autumnal prime, Presence is a gift that all fans of Miller’s work, as well as readers of contemporary fiction, will welcome.
