Long day's journey into night

by:O'Neill, Eugene, 1888-1953

It is a somber and moving drama, and its writing was an act of magnificent courage. Since its premiere in Sweden in 1956, it has been performed all over the world on stage, screen, and television, and over a million copies of the book have been printed and sold.
