Woody Allen: A Biographyby Eric Lax, Woody Allen
Few celebrities are as instantly recognizable as Woody Allen. Few are as notoriously shy. And perhaps none are as elusive: Is Woody Allen a comedian who wants to be taken seriously? Or is he a serious artist whose films happen to be funny? The very fact that Eric Lax was granted access to Woody for 4 years in order to research this biography must be counted as a triumph, & what Lax has produced is a marvel of intimacy & insight: a book that traces Allens career from his precocious start as a gag writer to his apotheosis as a genuine auteur; a book that takes readers behind the scenes of many of his films.
