John Simon on the Theatre: Criticism 1973-2003

Simon on Vanessa Redgrave, Long Day's Journey into Night The highly accomplished Redgrave gets some details right, but the overarching mental unstableness she exudes is so excessive as to make one wonder whether she is playing or being unhinged. This unique collection displays the wit, humour, wide span of knowledge, and serious engagement with the arts that have made John Simon's work respected and recognised the world over.
