DRAMA: AN ACTOR’S EDUCATION by John Lithgow December 22, 2011

Posted by lycan librarian in book reviews, Books and reading.

       This book is a memoir, not an autobiography, so those of you hoping to  sneak a peek at what it was like on the set of 3RD ROCK FROM THE SUN or DEXTER will not get what you are hoping for. Rather, readers can expect an interesting and unique tale of an unusual man and his equally unusual life. His family hopped from place to place a lot while he was growing up, and acting was introduced to Lithgow at a very young age — it was his father’s passion. For those who live in the area where I grew up, Northeast Ohio, you will get a bonus in the fascinating little tidbits about places such as the Stan Hywet mansion, and a walk down that proverbial old lane named memory. This is a delightful read about an actor’s introduction and education to the stage, and about how he was groomed from a very young age to appreciate that being different is a gift.
