Book: Shatner William «Up Till Now»

Up Till Now

Серия: "-"

This is the long-awaited autobiography of one of the most beloved entertainers in the world. William Shatner gets the joke about William Shatner. In fact, most of the time he's the one telling it. His self-effacing attitude, so perfectly parodied in the bombastic character he now plays on Boston Legal, Denny Crane, is one of the reasons for his huge popularity. While best known for his creation of Captain James T. Kirk, commander of the starship Enterprise on Star Trek, William Shatner has been a working actor for more than half a century. He has experienced all the ups (the awards and acclaim) and the downs (having to live for a time in the truck bed of his camper when he couldn't get work) that are a part of the actor's world. In Up Till Now he tells us about his remarkable life, from training as a Shakespearean actor under Sir Tyrone Guthrie to his time on Broadway, his movie career and, of course, his successful TV series. He has worked with an extraordinary range of actors, among them Spencer Tracy, Burt Lancaster, Marlene Dietrich, Judy Garland, Walter Matthau, Sandra Bullock, Ben Stiller and Robert DeNiro. He also writes, with glee, about some of his less successful ventures, including Incubus, the only feature ever made entirely in Esperanto. As funny, charming and self-deprecating as the man himself, this book will delight his many fans of all ages.

SHATNER, William

(1931-)
   Canadian actor and writer, long resident in the USA, where he gained fame as Captain Kirk in the STAR TREK tv series, going on to star in all the film sequels; he also directed the disappointing STAR TREK V: THE FINAL FRONTIER (1989), about which he wrote, with Lisbeth Shatner, TheCaptain's Log: William Shatner's Personal Account of the Making of Star Trek V, the Final Frontier (1989). Other books incorporating public memories include Star Trek Memories (1993) with Chris Kreski and Star Trek Movies Memories (1994), also with Kreski. In the preface to his first sfnovel, TekWar (1989) - set in a 22nd-century Los Angeles where crime is rife, and where a wise-mouth robot resignedly helps a lanky protagonist solve a mystery - WS acknowledges the assistance of Ron GOULART, who is otherwise uncredited as co-author. Teklords (1991),TekLab (1991), Tek Vengeance (1993), Tek Secret (1993) and Tek Power (1994), all also withGoulart (uncredited), soon followed. Believe Me (1992) with Michael Tobias is associational, with tinges of the occult.
