Product Overview

Both passionate and humorous, this lively memoir journeys from Jim Sharman''s colorful childhood in his father''s boxing troupe to his travels through Berlin, London, Sydney, and Tokyo, via the international successes of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," "Hair," and "Jesus Christ Superstar." This dynamic chronicle reveals behind-the-scenes details from the performances, recounts conversations with Lou Reed, and describes a fateful meeting with author Patrick White. From the rough and ready world of outback Australia in the 1950s--where boxers and "pantomime dames" shared the stage--to the cultural explosion of the 1970s and beyond, this is more than just a remarkable story about Australia; it is a moving tribute to a legendary family in the entertainment world.
