Summary of Presence Summary of Presence Reviews for Presence An Excerpt from Presence
An unforgettable collection of a master storyteller’s final works

Throughout his life, Arthur Miller, one of the foremost dramatists of the twentieth century, wrote highly regarded fiction—from his early novel Focus to two collections, I Don’t Need You Anymore and Homely Girl. In Presence, a posthumous gathering of his last published stories, he reveals the same profound insight, humanism, and empathy that characterized his great dramatic works. The six stories included here have all appeared in major publications and each displays all the assuredness of an artist in his autumnal prime. Presence is a gift that all fans of Miller’s work, as well as readers of contemporary fiction, will applaud.

“[Miller’s] sensibility . . . speak[s] powerfully throughout.”
The Boston Globe

“ A glimpse of an artist hard up against his ninth decade, still deeply preoccupied by that most particular and elemental aspect of the human condition—the workings and uses of desire.”
Los Angeles Times
