A lot about his father, Maurice, his siblings Ethel & Lionel and his grandmother whom he called Mum-Mum.
This book really comes to life, if you can also watch the movie/play "Barrymore" with Christopher Plummer.
I did not realize that John Barrymore & Evelyn Nesbit [of the Harry Thaw/Stanford White scandal]
had a romantic relationship when she was only 16 and JB was 27.
The writer's choice of words baffled me from time to time, as I had to "look up" the meaning of some of them
A very interesting read. Some good pics as well, of the man known as "The Profile"
