Summary
"In this first biography of Woody Allen in over a decade, David Evanier discusses key movies, plays and prose as well as Allen's personal life. Evanier tackles the themes that Allen has spent a lifetime sorting through in art: morality, sexuality, Judaism, the eternal struggle of head and heart. Woody will be the definitive word on a major American talent as he begins his ninth decade, and his sixth decade of making movies"--
Summary
Drawing on interviews with artistic collaborators, family and friends—including Woody Allen's first wife, Harlene Rosen, who hasn't commented about Allen since the end of their marriage in the 1960s—the best-selling author ofMaking the Wiseguys Weep chronicles the life of the film director while never shying away from the more controversial aspects of Allen's life.
