James Lipton is the creator, executive producer, writer, and host of Inside the Actors Studio. He is also the author of the novel Mirrors, which was adapted to film, and the book and lyrics for two Broadway musicals.Review:
“There are great, colorful stories about every side of show business here. James Lipton lets it all go; his openness about himself, and artists of all stripes, is refreshing.”
"James Lipton is the most penetrating and compassionate interviewer I've ever known, but, more importantly, a terrific guy."
“Once in a blue moon there is a person who comes along and excites an artist by his genuine interest in craft. James Lipton ignites the artist's own interest in himself and his craft - and often rekindles it. On these pages you'll find out how.”
“A wonderful book...Lipton knows an awful lot about acting and all of it is in this book. Interesting, original, valuable.”
“Every page brings forth revelations, experiences and moments that James Lipton has encountered and embraced, that could not possibly have happened in one single life, but most certainly did and continues to. He has interviewed a virtual Who’s Who in theater, film and entertainment over the past decade and sprinkles the book with incisive gems from the mouths of these special people. It’s a wonderful book, a joyful read and I highly recommend it!”
"James Lipton brings to us a very considered intelligence and a discerning appreciation of our leading artists in theater and film."
—Gay Talese, author of The Kingdom and the Power and Honor Thy Father
“Jim Lipton writes the way he talks,—with fluency and passion. His own story is as startling and revealing as his interviews are. We at the Actors Studio treasure him.”
—Oscar-winning actress Lee Grant
“I don’t know anyone more qualified than Jim Lipton to write a book about actors and their work processes. I consider this book the most comprehensive look into the lives and thoughts of the gifted people that Jim has interviewed. It’s wonderful.”
“James Lipton is our cultural insider for all seasons. As an actor, director, playwright, author, host, and friendly provocateur, he has seen it all and indeed lived it all!”
—Bruce Lundvall, President and CEO, Blue Note Label Group
