About this book:The first full and authorised biography of Britain's most popular playwright This biography of Britain's most popular playwright follows his early years as an actor, producer and struggling writer straight through to his great West End comedy successes in the 1970s and 1980s and on to his more gripping, and 'serious' plays of the 1990s. Following his unsettled childhood, his marriages and working relationship with actors such as Felicity Kendall, Richard Briars, Penelope Keith and Michael Gambon, this biography looks at his private life while asking what has made him such a successful writer, director and producer. He is a rare breed of theatre man: someone who works in the North where he has developed the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough into a luminous regional theatre kingdom but also a well known figure in London theatre and the international stage. Allen's biography looks at Ayckbourn the private man and the public theatre personality he has become for many in Britain.Mr Allen's book makes me want to start reading the entire Ayckbourn canon over again.

 THOMAS ARNOLD, Letters of Thomas Arnold the Younger, 1850-1900
THOMAS ARNOLD
Letters of Thomas Arnold the Younger, 1850-1900
OUP, 1980. First Edition, Hardcover. Good Condition. Jacket is missing. Clean unmarked boards, previous owner's bookplate to front pastedown, unmarked pages. Thomas Arnold, second son of Dr Arnold of Rugby, left England in search of a new life, first in New Zealand and then in Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania) in 1850. There he became an inspector of schools and married the beautiful Julia Sorrell. The record covered in this second volume of his letters begins at this point and continues with a generous selection of his letters to the end of his life in 1900. The earlier letters give a vivid impression of life in Van Diemen's Land and of his own home life. Arnold holds an interesting, if minor, place in literary and educational history. However, the great strength and fascination of these letters probably lies in their record of the man himself, caught up, sometimes tempestuously, in the movements of his time, particularly in his religious unsettlement and wrestling with Roman Catholicism; and of a marriage in which agonising disagreements on the deepest issues threatened but never overwhelmed the mutual love of both. 275 pages.
