Unfinished Business: Memoirs, 1902-1988
For over half a century, John Houseman played a commanding role on the American cultural scene. Nobody in the business has been a major part of so much of it. Almost every significant talent and personality collaborated with Houseman in the theater, Hollywood, radio and television. In Unfinished Business, the 1500 pages of his three earlier memoirs, Run-Through, Front and Center and Final Dress have been distilled into one astonishing volume, with fresh revelations throughout and a riveting new final chapter which brings the Houseman saga to a close.
