4.0 out of 5 stars difficult but great book on complex man, 14 Sep 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: The Life And Death Of Peter Sellers (Paperback)
There have been many books about the late, great Peter Sellers over the years, but this biography takes the time and hassle to present the reader with a detailed and revealing portrait of a talented but troubled actor.
I do find the author's style of writng somewhat confusing sometimes;Roger Lewis seems to cover different incidents of Sellers's life all at the same time.
However, I can quite easily overlook that minor quibble, as the text has been so brilliantly written and researched.
Both Peter Sellers's life and films are thoroughly examined, attempting to probe into the man.
The result is a picture of a man who claimed to have no inner self or personality of his own and became immersed in the art of characterizations.
The book is quite a challenge to read, but please stick with it and enjoy a terrific biography about a terrific actor.
