L'autore

Simon Louvish was born in Glasgow in 1947 and misspent his youth growing up in Israel between 1949 and 1968, including a stint as an army cameraman from 1965 to 1967.

Having decamped to the London School of Film Technique in 1968, Simon became involved in the production of a series of independent documentary films about apartheid in South Africa, dictatorship in Greece, and general mayhem in Israel-Palestine from 1969 to 1973. He also published a memoir of his Israeli days entitled A Moment of Silence in 1979.

Since 1985 Simon has published a series of novels set mainly in the Middle East, including the acclaimed Blok trilogy (The Therapy of Avram Blok, City of Blok and The Last Trump of Avram Blok). His most recent Middle East novel, The Days of Miracles and Wonders, was published in the UK in 1997 by Canongate.

Since 1979, he has also been teaching film at the London International Film School and writing for various newspapers and magazines.

Simon Louvish is the author of a trilogy of definitive biographies of the great clowns of screen comedy, including Man on the Flying Trapeze (1997), the story of W. C. Fields, Monkey Business: The Lives and Legends of the Marx Brothers (1999), and Stan and Ollie: The Roots of Comedy (2001), all published by Faber & Faber. Further film biographies include Keystone: The Life and Clowns of Mack Sennett(2003), Mae West: It Ain't No Sin (2005), and Cecil B. DeMille and The Golden Calf (2007).

4.0 su 5 stelle ... has given us a very well-researched book on the great comedians, the Marx Brothers 18 marzo 2017
Di Paul A. Dunphy - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Simon Louvish has given us a very well-researched book on the great comedians, the Marx Brothers. The problem is that the book becomes bogged down with minutiae. A lot of detail that is given is really not interesting and I felt the narration was endless at times. The inclusion of a filmography and family tree is a bonus but it's not particularly revelatory.

3.0 su 5 stelle Book Is Average At Best! 8 marzo 2016
Di Michael R. - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Simon Louvish is a very marginal writer. He probably has a wealth of information, but he doesn't do a very good job at keeping one very interested. I was hoping to learn everything about the Lives of the Marx Brothers & Family & I am struggling every time that I pick up the book. It is most definitely Not a Book that will keep you from falling asleep!

5.0 su 5 stelle The Best Book Yet on the Marx Brothers 19 novembre 2000
Di Parker Benchley - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Simon Louvish follows up his excellent biography of W. C. Fields with this ground-breaking study of the Marx Brothers. As with the Fields biography, Louvish demythologizes the story of the Marxes and gives us Marx fans a lot more information to digest and enjoy. Fans have tended to accept the early stories of Marx family life as carved in stone; Louvish shows how the real story differs and does it with loving respect rather than the harshness of a debunker. In addition to the Marxes, Louvish also takes a few sidebar trips into the lives of the not so well known supporting players, such as Margaret Dumont, whose life was draped in legend. Well researched and well written. As to the criticism of those who think his writing reflects too much of the Marx style of comedy, I can only reply that no one seemed to mind when Joe Adamson did the same thing in his landmark study on the Marx Brothers films, Groucho, Harpo, Chico and Sometimes Zeppo. I think this style of writing goes with the turf, so to speak, and in any case its annoyance factor is negligible compared to the rewards of his research. Highly recommded for any serious as well as casual Marx fan.

If you liked the Marx brothers I would highly recommend this book. Great insights into an amazingly interesting family. Well written and informative.
