Product description

Edward Petherbridge is one of Britain's finest and most highly respected actors. In a distinguished career spanning more than half a century he has proved equally at home in Greek tragedy and French farce, in Shakespeare and Chekhov, Moliere and O'Neill, Beckett and Bennett, Coward and Kurt Weill. Part memoir and part master class, this unique anthology of prose and poetry, lavishly illustrated throughout by Pethbridge's own artwork and many rare photographs, this is a wonderfully entertaining, incisive and often moving exposition of the very heart of the mystery of acting. Foreword by Ian McKellen. Good condition, some grubbiness on the page edges.
