Book Description

November 15, 1998 0719054230 978-0719054235 2nd
This book represents the first full-length examination of the work of the late, celebrated television playwright, Dennis Potter. Drawing upon a wealth of original research, including a rare interview with the writer himself, John Cook reveals for the first time the often astonishing array of themes which link together all of Potter’s writing: from his early television plays in the 1960s right through to his final works in 1994. In this new, fully revised and updated edition, Cook also examines recent events surrounding "the Potter legacy," offering powerful evidence from the writer’s final works which raise important questions about its future direction.
