Ernest Gebler, the writer of such international bestsellers as The Plymouth Adventure and Call Me Daddy (which became the film Hoffman), led a remarkable life. In this unauthorized biography, Carlo Gebler, Ernest's estranged son, tells the many stories of his father's life, from Ernest's turbulent personality and strict disciplinary attitude to his staunch socialism and his stormy marriage to Carlo's mother, writer Edna O'Brien, and his final struggle with Alzheimer's disease. In The Projectionist, Carlo Gebler explores and interprets his father's life in the hope of understanding why their relationship was such a difficult and emotional one, and which things from his own upbringing made his father the elusive man he was. *** "...a candid and insightful account of a remarkable man's life and achievements, his struggles and the consequences his choices would impose upon himself and his family. Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, "The Projectionist" is very highly recommended for community and academic library 20th Century Biography collections in general, and a "must read" for Ernest Gebler fans in particular." -- Midwest Book Review, MBR Bookwatch: February 2016, Micah's Bookshelf [Subject: Biography, Literature]
