About The Author

Gavin Lambert (1924–2005) was a British screenwriter, biographer, and novelist. His first and only feature film as a director, Another Sky (1954), was praised by Luis Buñuel and Roberto Rossellini. An affair with Nicholas Ray brought Lambert to Hollywood, where he contributed to Ray’s films Bigger than Life and Bitter Victory. Lambert went on to adapt D. H. Lawrence (Sons and Lovers), Tennessee Williams (The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone), and his own novel Inside Daisy Clover for the screen. In addition to his five novels, he published definitive biographies of Natalie Wood, Norma Shearer, and Lindsay Anderson, among other film-world royalty.
