Sean Connery A Biography (Paperback)
|Author: Christopher Bray|
From the Publisher:
Sean Connery's creation of secret agent James Bond invigorated Britain and its cinema, allowing a cash-strapped, morale-sapped country in decline to fancy itself still a player on the world stage. How can such worship not play havoc with one's soul?especially a soul as painfully unprepared for the pressures of stardom as Connery's?
Spirited and argumentative, Christopher Bray's Sean Connery is the story of an actor learning his craft on the job and, at the end of his career, of a man pressing his stardom into the service of a burgeoning political awareness.
