Abstract:

This volume is a biography of American screenwriter, director, and actor Woody Allen (b. 1935), whose comedic and film-making career has spanned more than 50 years. The author includes Allen's own comments, interwoven verbatim with a portrait of an artist who feels "enormously alienated from other people." He takes readers behind the scenes of Allen's most famous films and presents his candid opinions of his work, his influences, and his personal relationships.

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 four years in order to research this biography must be counted as a triumph. And what Lax has produced is a marvel of intimacy and insight: a book that traces Allen's 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 films such as Annie Hall, Hannah and Her Sisters, and Crimes and Misdemeanors; a book that overflows with Woody's candid opinions of his work, his personal relationships, and his life.
