Gambon

A Life in Acting

By Mel Gussow

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £8.99£7.19

A unique collection of interviews with Sir Michael Gambon, ranging over thirteen years, offering a fascinating picture of this most mischievously evasive of actors.

Michael Gambon is a notoriously private man. Yet this profile of him in his own words - assembled from interviews with drama critic, Mel Gussow - offers the most complete portrait yet of an actor who 'has just about everything - enormous power, great depth, absolute expertise and the ability to illuminate a character by the simplest of means' (Harold Pinter).

The book also contains interviews with writers, directors and actors who have worked with him (Dennis Potter, Alan Ayckbourn, Harold Pinter, Simon Russell Beale, Deborah Warner, Peter Hall and Adrian Noble).

'Gambon emerges from this entertaining book as a master of understatement, but not of underaction... illuminating flashes of what makes an actor tick' Daily Mail 'Book of the Week'

Extra Content: read an extract from Gambon: A Life in Acting, published in The Guardian, 23 April 2004.
