‘An Everyman who expressed the defiant spirit of freedom, Charlie Chaplin was first lauded and later reviled in the America that made him Hollywood’s richest man. He was a figure of multiple paradoxes, and many studies have sought to unveil ‘the man behind the mask’. But in this new book Simon Louvish looks afresh at the ‘mask behind the man’. It tells of an epic journey, summing up the roots of comedy and its appeal to audiences everywhere who revelled in the clown’s raw energy, his ceaseless struggle against adversity, and his capacity to represent our own fears, foibles, dreams, inner demons and hopes.’
