1 Kazan, Elia A Life
London Andre Deutsch 1988 0233982922 / 9780233982922 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is price clipped. First UK edition. 848 pages. Photographic illustrations throughout. Elia Kazan (1909-2003) was an American film and theatre director, film and theatrical producer, screenwriter, novelist and co-founder of the influential Actors Studio in New York in 1947. In this autobiography, described by Norman Mailer as 'This is the best autobiography I've read by a prominent American in I don't know how many years. It is endlessly absorbing and I believe this is because it concerns a man who is looking to find a coherent philosophy that will be tough enough to contain all that is ugly in his person and his experience, yet shall prove sufficiently compassionate to give honest judgement on himself and others. It has the candour of confession which is possible only when the deepest wounds have healed and honesty can achieve what honesty so rarely arrives at - a rich and hearty flavour. By such means, a famous director has written a book that offers the kind of human wealth we find in a major novel'. **** NOT EX LIB **** **** A HEAVY VOLUME OF 1.45 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH WILL REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST ****
