'Compulsive stuff for anyone interested in the subsidised theatre of the last three decades... his insights, off stage as well as on, are still much needed' David Lister, Independent

'It becomes a classic story, rather like an Arnold Bennett novel, of an outsider who, through talent, energy and doggedness, fights his way to the inside…an unusually honest book' Michael Billington
