Renowned biographer Hermione Lee turns her gaze towards a writer whom many would consider the leading English-language playwright of his generation. The result? A hit, a palpable hit! A thumper bumper of a book; all at once a life story, a backstage tour of the London theater world over the last 60 years, and a tantalizing glimpse into the relentless working method of a master craftsman (and by most accounts, thoroughly decent fellow).
In other words: the story of how one man, afflicted in equal measure by modesty and ambition, endured the swings and roundabouts of outrageous fortune (his line not mine, sadly) and somehow lived to hear the tale.
This gem of a book is a feast for both the eyes and the mind. Stunning photography allows the reader to gaze down on some of North America's most famous, and some of the country's least known, geological wonders as the author provides a clear explanation of the geological processes that gave them shape.
Caution: reading this book may lead to long, aimless walks across the landscape!
