William Shatner gets the joke about William Shatner. In fact, most of the time he's the one telling it. His self-effacing attitude, so perfectly parodied in the bombastic character he now plays on Boston Legal, Denny Crane, is one of the reasons for his huge popularity. While best known for his creation of Captain James T. Kirk on Star Trek, William Shatner has been a working actor for more than half a century. He has experienced all the ups (the awards and acclaim) and the down (having to live for a time in the truck bed of his camper when he couldn't get work) that are a part of the actor's world.
In Up Till Now he tells us about his remarkable life, from training as a Shakespearan actor to his time on Broadway, his movie career and, of course, his successful tv series. He writes, with glee, about some of his less successful ventures, including Incubus, the only feature ever made entirely in Esperanto. As funny and charming as the man himself, this book will delight his many fans of all ages.
