5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating look at a fascinating actor. 22 Jan. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
My interest in Irish theatre brought me to this book. What a find! A fascinating look at a fascinating actor. The author brings alive the work and times of MacGowran. A well-researched and thorough work recommended for any student of theatre. I was especially impressed with the variety of interview subjects. Made me do a search for MacGowran's available work on video. While not a big fan of Beckett, I was impressed by the relationship between the playwright and this ultimate interpreter of his works.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Gift of MacGowran 23 Aug. 2005
By Paul E. Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I cannot imagine my life without the influence of Jack MacGowran as a crucial part of it. Young does an excellent job of bringing this amazing actor's life and work to the reader. But, after reading the book, please take the time to discover what Jack did best: Bringing the works of Samuel Beckett to life.
