I mean, the guy is basically an author. Take that for what it's worth. But in my estimation, you really have to take into consideration his ability to write. I can't say my estimation, or the estimation of his author is really and effectively prorated, but I think we'd all agree that there's no reason to shoot a man before throwing him out of a plane.

I've never read him, but this quote from "The Iceman Cometh" has always stuck with me for some reason:

>

What's it matter if the truth is that their favoring breeze has the stink of nickel whiskey on its breath, and their sea is a growler of lager and ale, and their ships are long since looted and scuttled and sunk on the bottom? To hell with the truth! As the history of the world proves, the truth has no bearing on anything. It's irrelevant and immaterial, as the lawyers say. The lie of a pipe dream is what gives life to the whole misbegotten mad lot of us, drunk or sober.

Yes. His long form stuff is good, especially Long Day's Journey and Iceman.

His one acts not so much. I was in a production of the Web. That play fucking sucks but it's his first so what ya gonna do.

There's always his daughter Oona, who ruined JD Salinger's life then married Charlie Chaplain when he was 56 and she was 18. Whether Eugene was any good or not, Oona's always a great story.
