Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this riveting and surprising personal history, John Lithgow shares a backstage view of a young actor's life and career. Before he gained fame with the film The World According to Garp, his early years were full of scenes both hilarious and bittersweet. The theater worlds of New York and London come alive as Lithgow relives his collaborations with renowned performers and directors, including Mike Nichols, Bob Fosse, Liv Ullmann, and Meryl Streep. Above all, Lithgow's memoir is a tribute to his most important influence: his father, Arthur Lithgow, who, as an actor, director, producer, and great lover of Shakespeare, brought theater to John's boyhood.

Illuminating, funny, affecting, and thoroughly engrossing, Drama raises the curtain on the making of one of our most beloved actors.
