Elia Kazan was the twentieth century s most celebrated director of both stage and screen, and this monumental, revelatory book shows us the master at work. Kazan s list of Broadway and Hollywood successes "A Streetcar Named Desire, Death of a Salesman, On the Waterfront," to name a few is a testament to his profound impact on the art of directing. This remarkable book, drawn from his notebooks, letters, interviews, and autobiography, reveals Kazan s method: how he uncovered the spine, or core, of each script; how he analyzed each piece in terms of his own experience; and how he determined the specifics of his production. And in the final section, The Pleasures of Directing written during Kazan s final years he becomes a wise old pro offering advice and insight for budding artists, writers, actors, and directors."
