Eugene O'Neill's last completed play, A Moon for the Misbegotten is a sequel to his autobiographical Long Day's Journey Into Night. Moon picks up eleven years after the events described in Long Day's Journey Into Night, as Jim Tyrone (based on O'Neill's older brother Jamie) grasps at a last chance at love under the full moonlight. Josie Hogan, the play's exuberant heroine, tries to lift the stake of guilt and sorrow from Tyrone's heart as she allows herself to hope again for love.

This paperback edition features an introduction by Stephen A. Black, which is helpful to anyone who desires a deeper understanding of O'Neill's work
