Profiles by Kenneth Tynan, Kathleen Tynan

Profiles is republished alongside a new edition of Tynans Theatre Writings, the two volumes together vindicating his unrivalled reputation as the 20th centurys most influential - and most readable - writer on theatre and performance. Selected and edited by his widow and biographer, Kathleen Tynan, with a Foreword by Simon Callow, it is the first and only collection of the star-studded profiles that Tynan wrote throughout his life. From his first tribute to Orson Welles, written for the school magazine in 1943, to his weighty assessments of Tom Stoppard and, most famously of all, Louise Brooks for the New Yorker in the late 1970s, Tynan wrote dazzlingly about those who gave, in his own phrase, high-definition performances. Amongst the fifty assembled here are profiles of actors such as Garbo, Bogart, Cagney, Olivier and Gielgud; the directors George Cukor, Peter Brook and Joan Littlewood; writers such as Bertolt Brecht, Arthur Miller and Tennessee Williams; and comedians as diverse as Mel Brooks, Eric Morecambe, W.C. Fields and Lenny Bruce.--BOOK JACKET.|NON000000|PERFORMING ARTS
