About this book
Prideaux marks the centenary of Stringberg's death with this authoritative biography worthy of the man who laid the foundation for Western drama through the 20th century and into the 21st.
Novelist, satirist, poet, photographer, painter, alchemist, and hellraiser - August Strindberg was all these, and yet he is principally known, in Arthur Miller's words, as the mad inventor of modern theater. This title describes the eventful and complicated life of one of the great literary figures in world literature.
