Dennis Potter - The Authorised Biography

Humphrey Carpenter - HARDBACK Price: $35.00

This authorized biography is based on interviews with associates and on access to personal archives, including many unused television and film scripts

It takes us from Potter's childhood in the Forest of Dean, through a highly political Oxford career up to his marriage, to his childhood and lifelong sweetheart

After this the work becomes a mutated hybrid of Potter's own life and his dream world constructed from songs and sexual fantasies

He presents Potter through detailed accounts of his work and extensive interviews with friends, lovers and colleagues, leaving readers to make up their own minds about this fiery, brilliant, demanding man
