Product description


John Lahr writes like a master. He has a unique understanding of those who labour in the corners of showbiz -- Mike Nichols

What a wonderful, intelligent, complete critic -- Mel Brooks


"Honky Tonk Parade" illuminates some of the most compelling, elusive and important artists of our time, who talk to Lahr with rare candour. His portraits weave together biography, anecdote and shrewd interpretation. On the roster of greats are Dame Edna Everage, Cole Porter, Dame Judi Dench, Ang Lee, Billy Connolly, Kenneth Tynan, Baz Luhrmann, Laurence Fishburne, August Wilson, Mira Nair, Yip Harburg, Richard Rodgers, Tony Kushner and Bill Hicks. "Honky Tonk Parade", like the icons whose lives and work it so meticulously chronicles, corrupts an audience with pleasure.
