Puoi leggere gli Ebook sul tuo eReader Kobo (o su altri dispositivi di lettura elettronici)
An up close and personal portrait of one of the greatest filmmakers of all time, drawing on candid conversations with his closest friends and family—from Meryl Streep and Natalie Portman to Lorne Michaels and Stephen Sondheim. The work of Mike Nichols pervades American cultural consciousness—from The Graduate and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? to Angels in America, The Birdcage, Working Girl, and Primary Colors, not to mention the hit plays, Barefoot in the Park and The Odd Couple. His varied, wide-reaching accomplishments have defined American theater and cinema. Since Nichols never wrote his memoirs and seldom appeared on television, most fans have very little sense of his searching intellect or his devastating wit. They don't know that Mike Nichols was born Mikail Igor Peschkowsky and came to America from Berlin, speaking no English, to flee the Nazis. They don't know that Nichols was once a solitary medical student, or that he had been rendered hairless in childhood by a defective vaccine. They don't know that he was divorced three times before he "finally got it right," in his words, and married Diane Sawyer. Here, authors Sam Kashner and Ash Carter offer an intimate look behind the scenes of Nichols' life. Life Isn't Everything is a true oral history, as told by the Hollywood stars, high powered producers, fellow directors, crews and employees who stayed loyal to Nichols for years. A mosaic portrait of a brilliant director known for his charm, vitality, and genius for friendship, this volume is a snapshot of a life spent loving and making art in the 20th century.
