Woody Allen: New Yorker

Woody Allen: New Yorker

by Graham Mc Cann (Author)


This book is the first detailed study of Woody Allena s life and work, and an original attempt to locate Allena s work in the great tradition of American popular culture. It explores that inimitable New York Jewish voice in the themes, dreams, hopes and hidden meanings of Allena s urban humour, with countless examples of Allena s own hilarious comic lines.
