Long day's journey into night

by:O'Neill, Eugene, 1888-1953

Author Eugene O'Neill gives an autobiographical account of his explosive home life. Fused by a drug-addicted mother, a father who wallows in drink after realizing he is no longer a famous actor, and an older brother who is emotionally unstable and misfit, the family is reflected by their youngest son, who at 23 is a sensitive and aspiring writer. 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.

You disappear : a novel

by:Jungersen, Christian

"An unnerving and riveting psychological drama that challenges our notions of how we view others and how we construct our own sense of self. Mia is an elementary schoolteacher in Denmark, while her husband, Frederik, is the talented, highly respected headmaster of a local private school. During a vacation in Spain, Frederik has an accident and his visit to the hospital reveals a brain tumor that is gradually altering his personality, confirming Mia's suspicions that her husband is no longer the man he used to be. Now she must protect herself and their teenage son, Niklas, from the strange, blunted being who lives in her husband's body--and with whom she must share her home, her son, and her bed. When it emerges that one year ago Frederik had defrauded his school of millions of crowns, the consequences of his condition envelope the entire community. Frederick's apparent lack of concern doesn't help, and longstanding friendships with colleagues are thrown by the wayside. Increasingly isolated, Mia faces more tough questions. Had his illness already changed him back then when he still seemed so happy? What are the legal ramifications? In her support group for spouses of people with brain injuries, Mia meets a defense attorney named Bernhard. Together they help prepare for Frederik's court case by immersing themselves in the latest brain research and in classic philosophical questions of free will, while simultaneously navigating the uncertain waters of their growing mutual infatuation. Jungersen's clear, spare prose and ceaseless plot twists will keep readers hooked until the last page"-

Eugene O'Neill's long day's journey into night

This critically acclaimed production of Eugene O'Neill's autobiographical drama of a morphine-addicted mother and her tragic family unfolds over the course of a single day as the Tyrone family unflinchingly confronts its oldest, most haunting secrets. At the center of that maelstrom of blame, anger, and self-deception are moments of incredible compassion, pity, and love--and, behind it all, the profound tragedy that binds the family together. This classic translates to the screen with luminous warmth, resulting in a production that ranks high among screen adaptations of major stage works.
