Eugene O'Neill, one of America's great playwrights, and his wife Carlotta, pose with their pet cat at Tao House, their Danville, Calif., home, Aug. 10, 1939.

Acclaimed Eugene O’Neill biographer Barbara Gelb joins us to discuss her new book, By Women Possessed: A Life of Eugene O’Neill, coauthored with Arthur Gelb.
