From the back cover:
Bruno. The surname Lawrence seems almost superfluous, but the first name conjures up a whirlwind of memories. Music, touring theatre in New Zealand and Australia, films and television. From the 1950s until his untimely death in 1995 Bruno Lawrence was an enduring popular culture figure on both sides of the Tasman.
But Bruno also enjoyed an international reputation, with roles in feature films like Smash Palace, Utu and The Quiet Earth as well as major roles in television programmes such as Frontline (which propelled him to fame in Australia), and several academy awards.
Boundless energy, diverse talents, tremendous charm, a strong sense of fairness... these were just some of the qualities that made him so memorable. Yet this is no hagiography, for author Booth also explores Bruno's excesses, his improvidence and minor criminal activities (starting with the theft of a saxophone at age eight, and its redeeming aftermath).
This first biography of Bruno Lawrence will delight all who have enjoyed his music and films. Numerous illustrations add visual appeal to an amazing and enchanting story.
