Buster Keaton : Tempest in a Flat Hat, Paperback / softback Book

Buster Keaton : Tempest in a Flat Hat Paperback / softback


'Tracing Keaton's beginnings in vaudeville and how he eventually applied that form's traits to cinema, McPherson creates an excellent portrait of a formidable talent, also addressing the private demons that accelerated his eventual slide.' Empire'The author, rather like his subject, has the knack of sketching a poignant moment using minimum of sentimental flannel.' Sunday Telegraph 'McPherson wins one over because of his loving fan's attention to, and lively evocation of, the core of Keaton's achievement.' Telegraph'Graceful and charming...

McPherson's account is animated by the same sort of colour and vitality as Buster's best work.' Scotsman
