"Instead of personal chit-chat, Brook offers the chronicle of a committed quest. It leaves a moving impression of a man deeply fulfilled both spiritually and artistically." —Publishers Weekly

The man described by the New York Times as “the English-speaking world’s most eminent director” charts the aesthetic and spiritual journeys of his own remarkable career

In graceful and vivid scenes, Threads of Time chronicles the evolution of an extraordinary artistic intelligence, a man whose interests range worldwide from film and theater to myth and the inner life. Brook reveals the myriad sources driving his lifelong passion for finding the most expressive way to tell a story. Over the years we watch his metamorphosis from traditionalist to radical innovator, witnessing his expanding field of vision and sense of dramatic possibility.

PETER BROOK is an English theatre and film director, who has been based in France since the early 1970s. He has won multiple Tony and Emmy Awards, a Laurence Olivier Award, the Praemium Imperiale, and the Prix Italia.

Praise

“Stage and film director Brook’s soulful, introspective autobiography is as different from the conventional show-biz memoir as his imaginative productions are from traditional commercial theater… There is no gossip; his two children are mentioned just once; his wife (actress Natasha Parry) appears primarily as a working companion. Instead of personal chit-chat, Brook offers the chronicle of a committed quest. It leaves a moving impression of a man deeply fulfilled both spiritually and artistically.” —Publishers Weekly
