Enjoyable compilation, elgant writing,
This review is from: My Life in Pieces: An Alternative Autobiography (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Simon Callow gives us here a kind of compilation of his excellent writings on matters theatrical through the years. These are linked by autobiographical text to form an enjoyable narrative. It's a "dippable" book as well as one for continuous reading. I had not realised that Mr Callow is a writer until some time ago I read his notes on "Night Of The Hunter", which was revelatory with its vivid and elegant prose. This compilation gives anyone interested in the theatre a great deal to enjoy and certainly proves how fine a man of letters Mr Callow is.
