Tehanu writes: Most Peter Jackson fans will never get the chance to have dinner the man. This book might be the next best thing, because it is stuffed full of anecdotes about the very things a fan would probably want to ask him if they had the opportunity. PJ is as we all know a great storyteller, and this book gives him a chance to tell the story of how he came to be a great film-maker.

Author Brian Sibley has also collected stories from people who have known or worked with PJ since he was a child, and woven them together into an exhaustively well-researched account of PJ’s life to date. The book charts his progress from an “enchanted” childhood of remarkable freedom, to the David and Goliath battles he faced when he started work on the Rings. [More]
