The last work from one of the twentieth century’s most significant writers, continuing the semi-autobiographical cycle centring on the Tyrone family started by Long Day’s Journey into Night.

James ‘Jamie’ Tyrone Jnr. is a hard-drinking Broadway playboy, trying to blot out his painful memories of the past by indulging his craven self-destructive streak. One day he finds that he has wandered to the home of his salty tenant-farmer Phil Hogan; and Hogan’s lusty, jaded daughter Josie. Under the Connecticut moon, Jamie and Josie find something in each other they never knew existed – though it is only when he passes out dead drunk that Josie can really touch him. But will he still be there when the moon goes?
