Anthony Burgess by Roger Lewis( Book )

23 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"He was the last great modernist. Novelist, poet, composer, librettist, essayist, semanticist, translator, critic, Anthony Burgess's versatility and erudition found expression in more than fifty books and dozens of musical compositions, from operas, choral works, and song cycles to symphonies and concertos." "Here now is a kaleidoscope of a book - the culmination of twenty years of writing and research - about a man who remains best known for A Clockwork Orange, the source of Stanley Kubrick's groundbreaking, mind-bending, and prescient film." "Tracking Burgess from Manchester to Malaya to Malta to Monte Carlo, the author assesses Burgess's struggles and uncovers the web of truth and illusion about the writer's famous antic disposition. Burgess, the author argues, was just as much a literary confidence man and prankster as a consummate wordsmith."--Jacket
The life and death of Peter Sellers by Roger Lewis( Book )

3 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roger Lewis, in his no-holds-barred biography, exposes a Peter Sellers the world little knows. Recognized as the greatest British comic since Charlie Chaplin, Sellers was the grand master of fifty-five films - from Dr. Strangelove, to Being There and the Pink Panther hits. But shadowing his phenomenal career was a history of increasingly bizarre behavior involving psychotic violence, compulsive promiscuity, drug abuse and humiliating self-destructive obsessions with people including Princess Margaret, Sophia Loren, Liza Minnelli and each of his four wives (Ann Hayes, Britt Ekland, Miranda Quarry and Lynne Frederick). He alternately showered his wives and children with gifts and then threatened to kill them
The real life of Laurence Olivier by Roger Lewis( Book )

4 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Real Life of Laurence Olivier, Roger Lewis goes beyond the magical illusions the actor created to tell the truth about the man's sexuality, ambition, revenges, power, preoccupations, and achievements. Most of all, Olivier's life and work become a love story - the tale of his relationship with Vivien Leigh, who was destroyed by the extent of her passion for him, as he himself was cast into a frenzy of guilt and disillusion - which he embodied in his portrayals of Archie Rice, Macbeth, and James Tyrone in Long Day's Journey into Night. Olivier and Leigh never got over each other: they grieved for a world of lost innocence and happiness - which had never, in fact, existed

Set in early eighteenth-century Scotland, the novel recounts the corruption of a boy of strict Calvinist parentage by a mysterious stranger under whose influence he commits a series of murders. The strangers assures the boy that no sin can affect the salvation of an elect person. The reader, while recognizing the stranger as Satan, is prevented by the subtlety of the novel's structure from finally deciding whether, for all his vividness and wit, he is more than a figment of the boy's imagination
Erotic vagrancy by Roger Lewis( Book )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor were a Sixties supercharged couple in an era of supercharged couples. As a pairing they were fantasy figures, impossibly desirable. Liz supple and soft, in perfumes and furs - yet with something demonic and lethal about her. Dick, in turn, with his ravaged, handsome face, looked as though lit by silver moonlight - poised to turn into a wolf. Roger Lewis uses this glamorous and damaged pair as the starting point to tell the story of an age of excess: the freaks and groupies, the private jets and jewels and the yachts sailing in an azure sea; the magnificent bad taste and greed. It is about the clash of worlds: the filth and decay of South Wales and the grandeur and elegance of Old Hollywood; the fantasies we have about film stars and the fantasies the Burtons had about each other
