In this audio edition of his memoir, Lithgow pays tribute to his father, John, an actor, director, and producer who introduced the famous actor to the theater as a young boy. With endless musings regarding his personal history, Lithgow weaves together a colorful portrait of life as an actor: the good times, the bad times, and why both were so important to the art of acting itself. Listening to Lithgow is as easy as watching him act. His delivery is seamless, his dedication to the performance unwavering. Not just a memoir but also a statement about the art of acting, this audiobook is an illuminating study of process and method. Listeners will find it hard to turn off. A Harper hardcover. (Sept.)
