And playwright Arthur Miller shunned, ignored, kept out of his life his son, Daniel, born with Down syndrome.
I remember reading about this in Vanity Fair (I thought); so, I went to see if it was still online; and, it is, Arthur Miller's Missing Act.Speaking of Millers (and, yeah, I admit it, Roger, I could not resist that one), wasn't it loosey-goosey Henry who was ready to kill someone when they made a smart remark about getting into the pants of *somebody's* fifteen-year-old daughter? I think it was one of the Beat poets. They had to be pried apart. Man, the things you sorta remember . . .For example, I think Rebecca, Arthur's daughter, married Daniel Day-Lewis. (Well, a bunch of Canadians did invent Trivial Pursuit, eh?)
That sounds like something Henry would do, Judith. The real-life Henry was a lot more upright that the Henry in the books. He was also, by most accounts, a really nice guy.
