9780571217212: Anthony Burgess
Reseña del editor:

'Like his subject, Lewis is an intellectual showman, a connoisseur of the arcane, a collector of titillating trivia . . . Fascinated with Burgess' consummate fakery and repelled by his control-freakery, Lewis nonetheless succeeds in humanising this sacred monster.' Christopher Silvester, Daily Express

The author of over sixty books - most famously A Clockwork Orange - Anthony Burgess, Roger Lewis argues, was the writer as faker and prankster who lived, like an actor, by deception and illusion. Tracking his quarry from Manchester to Malaya to Malta to Monte Carlo, Lewis assesses Burgess' struggles and grudges and in the process creates a deliriously kaleidoscopic modern classic about an antic disposition. Outrageously funny and irreverent, Anthony Burgess explores the divisions that characterised its subject and conjures a cast of drunks, nymphomaniacs, egotists, journalists and famous twentieth-century authors.

'Lewis himself has a novelist's eye for detail . . . Will be read long after Burgess' works have vanished into oblivion.' Jeremy Lewis, Mail on Sunday

'This book abounds with such sublime moments of resurrection, on the wings of Lewis' mordant humour. The two of them wrestle for every page. Is this fission or fusion? Either way the energy release is enormous.' Duncan Fallowell, The Times

Biografía del autor:

Roger Lewis is the author of The Life and Death of Peter Sellers ('His research here has staggering breadth and depth, as does his relentless power of insight tempered with humanity.' The Hollywood Reporter), which is being developed as a biopic by HBO, and The Real Life of Laurence Olivier ('A passionate and monumental celebration of a genius.' Arthur Miller in the Sunday Times), which has formed the basis of a documentary for Channel 4. His biography of Anthony Burgess is published by Faber, in November 2002.
