'A glorious compendium of John's scintillating irreverences and
fabulous faux pas... He was one of the greatest of all theatrical
personalities, and these utterly characteristic throwaway squibs
bring him vividly back to life.' Simon Callow This delicious feast
of "Gielgoodies", compiled by Gielgud's biographer, reveals a less
well-known side to this celebrated man of the theatre: his
lightning wit, his love of scandal and gossip, his wicked delight
in putting down his fellow-artists, his relish of bawdy humour.
Full of startling new material, drawn from many unpublished letters
and Jonathan Croall's extensive interviews, the book also
celebrates the man who dropped a thousand bricks. Gielgud's
excruciating gaffes were legendary, and here are both the famous
and the unknown, collected in all their glory. Whether committed
backstage, in the wings or in rehearsals, on film sets or in
television studios, they bring this merry and much-loved man
vividly to life.
