Summary

Summary

This biography explores the life and work of Denis Johnston, barrister, theatre director, film-maker, pioneering television producer, war correspondent, essayist and celebrated playwright. In this work, Bernard Adams draws upon Johnston's copius and intimate diaries, letters and uncompeted autobiography deposited in Trinity College, Dublin, cataloguing the untidy museum of his subject's past. He brings light to the extraordinary secret life of a complex, self-doubting individual.
