Description - Gielgoodies! The Wit and Wisdom & Gaffes of John Gielgud by Jonathan Croall

New in paperback, this delicious feast of `Gielgoodies', compiled by Gielgud's biographer, reveals a less well-known side to this celebrated man of the theatre: his lightning wit, his love of scandal and gossip, his wicked delight in putting down his fellow artists, his relish of bawdy humour. Full of startling new material, drawn from many unpublished letters and Jonathan Croall's extensive interviews, the book also celebrates the man who dropped a thousand bricks.
