Product Description

About the Author

David Bloomberg first made his name in South Africa as a director of plays. Subsequently his career embraced the legal profession, the business world and civic politics where as the mayor of Cape Town in the seventies he was a fierce opponent of the apartheid system. At one time a columnist for Cape Town newspapers, his latest career as a writer started 10 years ago and relying on his understanding of theatre, The Don...Story of an Actor is his sixth book. It is indeed the story of a bisexual English actor who rises to the heights of his profession but whom also, due to his complex bisexuality and alcohol and drug dependency, plummets periodically to depths of degradation.

Read "The Don" in one session, I really enjoyed my journey into a very different world, obviously well known to the author and very close to his heart.
The storyline is perfect with the end coming right on cue.
Really good read with full recommendation to all!! In fact, I am familiar with and have enjoyed all the former books of the author and am truly looking forward to the next.
