About the Author:

Dennis Potter was born in 1935 in Gloucestershire. After National Service he won a place at New College, Oxford where he read Philosophy, Politics and Economics. He became one of Britain's most accomplished and acclaimed dramatists. His plays for television include Blue Remembered Hills (1979), Brimstone and Treacle (commissioned in 1975 but banned until 1987), the series Pennies from Heaven (1978), The Singing Detective (1986), Blackeyes (1989) and Lipstick on Your Collar (1993). He also wrote novels, stage plays and screenplays. Seeing the Blossom, his final television interview, was published in 1994. He died in June 1994.

From Library Journal:

Potter is best known in America as the author of two popular miniseries, Pennies from Heaven and The Singing Detective , shown here on public television. Fuller, executive editor of Interview magazine, produced this book from five interviews he conducted with Potter. As one would expect, Fuller is adept at his job. Those American readers who pick up the book, however, are likely to be disappointed, as much of it is concerned with works (such as his early plays written for the BBC) that have received little or no exposure here. For special collections. --John Smothers, Monmouth Cty. Lib., Manalapan, N.J.
