About this title:


'Rouse tempers, goad and lacerate, raise whirlwinds' - these instructions were pinned above the desk of Kenneth Tynan and he followed them religiously. He wasthe first drama critic since Bernard Shaw, architect of Olivier's National Theatre repertoire, deviser of the erotic review Oh! Calcutter!, journalist and social reformer. In this moving and sometimes shocking biography Kathleen Tynan traces her husband's life from his illegitimate birth and provincial childhood, through his rebellious undergraduate years at Oxford to his dazzling career as the 'first postwar British myth' - actor, director, writer, flamboyantpersonality and provocateur of the Establishment on both sides of the Atlantic.
