Self-plug: MAX LINDER book now available

Unread post by Smari1989 » Wed Oct 25, 2017 5:08 pm

My book MAX LINDER: FATHER OF FILM COMEDY is now available. Many, many thanks to BearManor Media - as well as Georg Renken for his wonderful website maxlinder.de, which has been of immense help to me.

The book covers Max's beginnings as an anonymous bit-player onstage, to his becoming one of the most celebrated stars of his time; a career which, as anyone reading will know, ultimately resulted in an unthinkable tragedy...

Thank you, Bruce!

I'd like to give an additional thanks to several members of this site, who helped me out early this year when I asked for advice as to how I might handle Max's later, dismal years in the best manner. In the end, I think the book does cover Max's later life and aftermath relatively thoroughly -- I hope so -- although I've wished most of all to celebrate his comic genius, of course.

Just ordered my copy of the hardback edition. Thanks, Snorre. Can't wait! Max Linder is one of my favorite early silent movie comedians. Wish more of his films were available, but I'm grateful for what have survived.

I see now that, in the last sentence on p. 7, I’ve written that Max took on his «surname» while still a youngster, where it should say «forename.» Likewise on p. 41. How this glaring error slipped me by I have no idea. However, I believe I've managed to catch most errors, so bear with me!

EDIT: the error(s) will be corrected in all future prints of the book. Please accept my heartfelt apologies to readers who already bought it, but I assure you that, apart from that one change of word two places in the ms, it's the exact same book! Thanks for all support.
