Gently paced but fascinating as it teases out its unique subject in a rare way. This documentary stays with you. I ordered his memoir that the documentary bases itself on the next day....

Got this some time ago and have viewed it more than once. I saw The Grass Arena many years ago and was fascinated by the character of John Healy. The story moves on and Healy explains his actions which led to the withdrawal of The Grass Arena from public view. A pity because it has much still to say to the young people of today. I would recommend this cd to chess lovers, and to any parent concerned with the threat of drugs and alcohol. I also make a plea for The Grass Arena to be re-released.

What an amazing story - a best selling author who came from alcoholism, violence and prison to write the best autobiography in decades The Grass Arena: An Autobiography (Penguin Modern Classics) and then is dropped by Faber & Faber and by all the main stream media and remains an outcast for very little reason. This portrait by Irish director Paul Duane is moving, honest and at times stunning.
