Tales of an Actor

"Berkoff: Brutal, compassionate, brilliant. Examines the actor's soul with a precision that is acutely painful and appallingly funny."
Richard E Grant

"Steven Berkoff is different. His 'Tales of an Actor' speak with a bracing honesty of experience in the theatre with which all actors are familiar, but which few have dared to articulate. He is a pioneer. His views are both caustic and invigorating... I hope they will be read by anyone interested in the theatre and in the work of actors."
Paul Scofield

"Steven Berkoff's funny and touching 'Tales of an Actor' strikes one with all the terrors and stupidity and hilarity with which we combat our ill-chosen, foolish way of life."
Alec McCowen

Harry is a dedicated actor, often out of work, rejected and desperate for opportunities to practise his art. Brief moments of success only serve to increase his thirst for fulfilment. In these moving, sometimes harrowing short stories Steven Berkoff tears the skin off the acting profession to reveal the raw, bleeding reality of the actor's everyday life.
