Product description

Review

Essential...Callow has a gift for transforming personal experience into blazingly intelligent, objective, critical appreciation. --Observer

Callow's not simply a terrific actor who happens to write. You could as well call him a terrific writer who happens to act. --The Times

Full of love and delight...A person of gargantuan capacity, as actor, director, biographer, scholar, solo performer, raconteur and confessional writer. --Diana Quick in the Guardian on My Life in Pieces

His detailed and perceptive portraits of figures as various and extraordinary as Charlie Chaplin, Charles Laughton, Peter Brook, Rudolf Nureyev, Peter Ustinov, Tommy Cooper and John Gielgud are utterly irresistible. When it comes to people he admires, whom he's befriended through working with them - Alan Bennett, Peter Shaffer, David Hare, Michael Gambon - you realise he also possesses a gift for transforming personal experience into blazingly intelligent, objective, critical appreciation...his brilliant analysis of naturalism in acting, and his scornful rejection of the "luvvie" label, are alone worth the price of this essential, agreeably exhausting tome. --Guardian
