About the author (1987)

Garry O'Connor has been a major and prolific English biographer since his life of Ralph Richardson, published in 1980, was hailed in "The New York Times Book Review" as "Stunning... the best biography of an actor I've ever read," and by the "London Sunday Times" as an "astounding book, original in form and fascinating in content." He has subsequently written highly praised lives of Sean O'Casey, Peggy Ashcroft, Paul Scofield and William Shakespeare and, most recently, Alec Guinness. He lives in England with his wife and six children.
