Book summary

Jack Rosenthal had always resisted writing an autobiography, until he hit on an original way of writing it that excited himit would be as a screenplay, with himself as the central character, and the supporting cast drawn from the many wonderful and eccentric people who touched, shaped, and shared that life. What a prospect, coming from the author of such memorable classics as Bar Mitzvah Boy, The Evacuees, London's Burning, The Knowledge, and P'tang Yang, Kipperbang, a writer who uniquely won three successive BAFTA Awards. The story moves from Manchester in the 30svia school, evacuation, university, the Navy, the early days of Granada TV, marriage and life with Maureen Lipman, fatherhood, writing the famous plays, and working with Streisandto Muswell Hill in the 90s. Sharp, funny, evocative, teeming with memorable stories and characters this is an autobiography like no other.
