About the book:

Described by Sheridan Morley as "a Welsh wizard of an actor", Emlyn Williams struggled up from poverty in Wales to enjoy great success as a playwright and actor on the West End stage. Emlyn Williams prospered in the threatre for more than 50 years, with such plays as "Night Must Fall" and "The Corn is Green", and arguably created a new theatrical genre - the one-man show, based on Charles Dickens, Dylan Thomas and Saki. This biography recounts the strange duality that pervaded Williams's life. Though kind and warm-hearted in private life,he was at the same time obsessed with child murderers and the psychopathology of killers and blackmailers. An adoring husband who never ceased to write ardent love letters to his wife, he remained an inveterate bisexual.
