John Osborne's second volume of autobiography is a vivid and biting portrayal of one of the most important playwrights of the Twentieth Century.
Starting with the huge reaction to his groundbreaking masterpiece "Look Back In Anger," the book goes on to cover his relationships with his next three wives, mother and audience, all are told with his usual savage wit and style.
The reader is left with the impression that this talented, articulate man's anger was not only the driving force of his work but also his decline.
A truly excellent insight. As good as anything he ever wrote, including "Look Back In Anger."
