Description
(Winner of the 2012 Duff Cooper Prize and a finalist for the Samuel Johnson Prize) The author of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize winner Edvard Munch: Behind the Scream here gives us her brilliant portrait of August Strindberg (18491912). A novelist, satirist, poet, photographer, painter, alchemist, and hell-raiser, Strindberg is principally known today for being, in Arthur Miller's words, "the mad inventor of modern theater," who led playwriting out of the polite drawing room into the snake pit of psychological warfare. Sue Prideaux organizes Strindberg's story into a gripping and highly readable narrative that both illuminates his work and restores humor and humanity to a man often shrugged off as too difficult.

"In Prideaux's hands, Strindberg, a vulnerable but also naively determined man, with striking chaotic hair like a combed back walnut whip, comes vividly to life. Indeed, the joy of her book is in the detail, from quoted letters and diaries and some stunning photography."Sunday Telegraph (London)
