Book DescriptionHe was the very first icon of the silver screen, and is one of the most recognisable faces in Hollywood, even a hundred years on from his first film. But what of the man behind the moustache? The director holding the camera as well as acting in front of it? Peter Ackroyd's new biography turns the spotlight on Chaplin's life as well as his work, from his humble theatrical beginnings in music halls to winning an honorary Academy Award. Everything is here, from the glamour of his golden age to the murky scandals of the 1940s and eventual exile to Switzerland. This masterful brief life offers fresh revelations about one of the most familiar faces of the last century and brings the Little Tramp into vivid colour.
Editorial ReviewHaunting... Brilliant and unsparing -- Simon Callow * Guardian * "Compact, engrossing, intelligent" -- John Carey * Sunday Times * "Chaplin's rise makes an enthralling story, and it's one perfectly suited to Peter Ackroyd's prodigious and idiosyncratic talents... Ackroyd acknowledges Chaplin's many human failings, while at the same time giving us a vivid sense of what made the man a genius" -- Lucy Hughes-Hallett * The Telegraph * "A beautifully judged book, driven by a powerful sense of life's sadness" -- Craig Brown * Mail on Sunday * "[A] fine biography... The luxury of a short book about a vast life cannot be overestimated" -- Susie Boyt * Financial Times *
