Timebends by Arthur Miller is a long-winded autobiography that incoherently jumps back and forth. It took me a long time to get through this, which wasn't a bad thing. What an interesting life Arthur Miller led, and not just because he happened to marry Marilyn Monroe. A true intellectual despite his humble roots, this man really knew everyone: actors, artists, musicians, directors, producers, photographers, politicians, veterans, and of course, other writers.

Arthur Miller's plays have held the world's stages for almost half a century. His memoir, Timebends, shows that the life of the man is as compelling as his plays. With passion, wit, and candor, Miller recalls hischildhood in Harlem and Brooklyn in the 1920s and the Depression; his successes and failures in the theater and in Hollywood; the formation of his political beliefs that, two decades later, brought him into confrontations with the House Committee on Un-American Activities; and his later work on behalf of human rights as the president of PEN International.

America's greatest playwright weaves "a vivid, crackling, idiomatic psychosexual horror tale. Frank Rich, The New York TimesIn A View from the Bridge Arthur Miller explores the intersection between one man's self-delusion and the brutal trajectory of fate. Arthur Miller’s penultimate play, Resurrection Blues, is a darkly comic satirical allegory that poses the question: What would happen if Christ were to appear in the world today? In an unidentified Latin American country, General Felix Barriaux has captured an elusive revolutionary leader.

Reviews about Timebends A LIfe (7):
zzzachibis
It is an incredible book and that is no surprise coming from a writer like Arthur Miller. It is not only about him but the history of America and NYC in the times he grew up. He is a brilliant intellectual and the book was a real mind blower. It is very touching to read about him and Marilyn Monroe. He is very sensitive and kind towards her in the book and one feels that he really loved and admired her but she was totally wrong for him, or perhaps for any man, because of her neurotic personality inflated by the profession she was in. Her turmoil and suffering could not be alleviated by Arthur Miller and he was wise to get out while the getting out was possible and to build himself a "normal" life with a caring and devoted wife.

The photograph of Marilyn Monroe seated on an airplane next to a playwright named Arthur Miller made me wonder what he was like. She picked him over all the possibilities in Hollywood; a man that clearly smoked cigarettes like a smartass... I was reminded to not judge a person like a book to its cover, by a photograph. He was an amazing man with much to tell. I enjoyed his life!

This book gives a good understanding of the aspects of Miller's history that influenced his writing. Fascinating reading to understand his beliefs and philosophy of life that is reflected in his choice of subject matter and characterizations in his plays. Some of it is "laugh-out-loud funny" too. He doesn't take himself too seriously, which makes for good reading.
Bralore
Reading this book is like actually spending time with Arthur Miller. It is insightful into his life, his work, and humanity.
Authis
This is the rare type of book that says more about the author than any of his work. Written as though talking to you in an honest voice, Timebends describes Miller's life and world. Reminds me of Hemingway's "A Moveable Feast", but Timebends has a larger scope.
Ariurin
For me, the two reasons to read this book are the first person accounts of significant events of the 20th century, and the expressiveness of his prose. On the down side, the book is long and overall seems to be an effort at self-justification, especially with regard to his relationship and marriage to Marilyn Monroe.
Bandiri
THIS BOOK HAS SOME NEVER BEFORE SEEN PICTURES ON IT, OF ARTHUR MILLER AND MARILYN MONROE..
WHEN THEY WERE MARRIED.. AND HAS HIS INSIGHTS FROM HIM ON HIS LIFE, AND THAT PART OF IT AS WELL..
Enjoyed the book. Interesting the passages he writes about his wife (Marilyn Monroe).
