Garrick was the greatest actor of his time. Witty, clever and dynamic, he was a celebrity by the age of twenty-five, transfixing his audiences with his magnetic performances in Richard III and King Lear. Garrick dominated the stage for forty years and gave it a new status. Ian McIntyre's dazzling biography brings this legend of the theatre to life and recreates the vibrant intellectual and social milieu of which Garrick was so much a part. Among his friends were Johnson, Boswell, Reynolds, Sheridan, Burke, Gibbon and Fox. Their voices, as well as Garrick's own, illuminate the book.
