Mainly about Lindsay Anderson - a Memoir


Gavin Lambert

Published by Faber & Faber

This is an elegant, intimate and witty biography of one of the foremost figures of post-war British cinema and theatre

Lindsay Anderson's About John Ford combined a critical biography with a memoir of his guarded friendship with the great Western director. Now Gavin Lambert, a close friend of Anderson's since schooldays, has essayed a similar tribute to Anderson himself. Lambert celebrates Anderson's inimitable films (If . . ., O Lucky Man, Britannia Hospital), and his remarkable theatrical collaboration with David Storey (The Changing Room, Home, In Celebration)

Lambert has enjoyed access to Anderson's private journals, which span fifty years of his life and shed important light on his personality; and he has interviewed numerous colleagues and friends including Alan Bates, Alan Bennett, Stephen Frears, Helen Mirren and Karel Reisz
