Format: Paperback
I don't often read plays, preferring to see them, but this one is special. It's beautifully written and many men will recognize the anguish of this father-son relationship. It should be better known than it is.

This play is written so that the message is just as clear if you read it or are fortunate enough to see it performed. It is a beautifully written play that shows how fathers and sons relate.

HASH(0x98cb5888) out of 5 stars Moving and meaningful; a play/film that still works. My highest recommendation Jan. 20 2016
By Timothy J. Bazzett - Published on Amazon.com
I thought I would belatedly add this much-loved and often-read play to my LT collection. I have read it several times over the past forty-some years. I bought this Signet paperback edition in 1970, shortly after seeing the film adaptation with Gene Hackman and Melvyn Douglas, who played the domineering, angry, aging father with faculties that were failing fast. Hackman was equally good, as the ex-Marine son doing his best to help his parents and resolve the longstanding misunderstandings and lack of communication between him and his father. Am I praising a book, a play or a film here? It doesn't really matter. If you've never read Robert Anderson's play - or his screenplay - or seen the film, then I urge you to do so. Just as a sample, to perhaps pull you in, here is the opening voice-over, from the son -

"Death ends a life, but it does not end a relationship, which struggles on in the survivor's mind toward some resolution, which it may never find."

Although this is a play about fathers and sons, I think mothers and daughters might find it equally moving and relevant. I'm not going to say any more. Read the play or see the movie. My highest recommendation.

HASH(0x98cb11c8) out of 5 stars Just the right balance of intellect and emotion Nov. 28 2014
By Mike Kimmel Scenes for Teens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This play has a couple of strong dramatic monologues for men. It also allows for just the right balance of intellect and emotion. Mr. Anderson builds his storyline expertly and takes readers on a wonderful ride in the process.
HASH(0x98e90d08) out of 5 stars Attachments Feb. 29 2012
By Ed Koslin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The play takes us into the pain and longing of a son's relationship with his father. It writhes with the attempts of a child to form an attachment with a father that never quite happens.
