Andre Gregory

IN THIS PERCEPTIVE, NONLINEAR MEMOIR… [André Gregory] offers anecdotal reflections on his artistic life… Film lovers and theatergoers will delight in Gregory’s reminiscences.
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review)

As a director, actor, writer, teacher, and painter, Gregory has a lot to say, and he says it with style and no little substance. Readers fascinated by theater, film, and the creative process will want to pull up a chair, pour a glass of wine, and feast on the thoughts of one of the theater’s great artists.
— BOOKLIST

[André Gregory] recounts his early life as a spectacular swirl of tragedy and privilege, one that sets the stage for his later, almost comical searches for theatrical inspiration across countless borders of country, class, and culture… But this book is more than an account of Gregory’s plays, roles, or foibles. Rather, it’s an intimate conversation between Gregory and readers (made possible by theater historian London) that asks us to listen to the ideas behind the words and emerge more thoughtful for it… This rare, beautiful book toes the line between life and work; a must for [My Dinner with Andre] fans and theater lovers.
— LIBRARY JOURNAL
