Book Description

6 Jun 1994 Directors on Directors
British television's pre-eminent playwright - latterly a novelist and film-maker - talks with passionate erudition, disarming candour and acerbic wit about the early influences that shaped him and led to his pioneering use of non-naturalism, to his self-reflexive subversion of film and TV cliches, his controversial approach to sex, politics, religion and the double-edged puritanism of the English condition. The book presents a remarkable portrait of a man for whom writing is, first and foremost, a vocation.

5.0 out of 5 stars potter on potter 28 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback
I rate the book, Potter on Potter AS EXCELLENT. He dared to push the boundries in all directions, and not only was he a playwright, but a director, critic and author. Sadly, we will never see his like again. everyone should read it.
