'Reflections on the late Arthur Miller from over seventy writers, actors, directors and friends, with ''Arthur Miller Remembers'', an interview with the writer from 1995. Following his death in February 2005, newspapers were filled with tributes to the man regarded by many as the greatest playwright of the twentieth century. Published as a celebration and commemoration of his life, Part I of Remembering Arthur Miller is a collection of over seventy specially commissioned pieces from writers, actors, directors and friends, providing personal, critical and professional commentary on the man who gave the theatre such timeless classics as All my Sons, A View from the Bridge, The Death of a Salesman, and The Crucible. Contributors read like a Who''s Who of theatre, film and literature: Edward Albee, Alan Ayckbourn, Brian Cox, Richard Eyre, Joseph Fiennes, Nadine Gordimer, Dustin Hoffman, Warren Mitchell, Harold Pinter, Vanessa Redgrave and Tom Stoppard, to name but a few.

Part II, ''Arthur Miller Remembers'', is an in-depth and wide-ranging interview conducted with Miller in 1995. Bigsby''s expertise and Miller''s candour produce a wonderfully insightful commentary and analysis both of Miller''s life and the life of twentieth century America, including Miller''s upbringing in Harlem, the Depression, marriage to Marilyn Monroe, post-war America, being sentenced to prison by the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1956, and his presidency of the writer''s organisation, PEN International, as well as commentary and analysis of his many plays and his reflections on the theatre in America.'
