Critic and columnist John Heilpern (Vanity Fair) discusses the life and work of the pivotal British playwright John Osborne (1929-1994), the subject of Heilpern’s outstanding and critically-acclaimed biography,  John Osborne: The Many Lives of the Angry Young Man. Osborne transformed the British theater with his 1956 play Look Back in Anger (now being revived in NYC at The Roundabout Theatre). He became one of England’s most revered and successful writers, all the while suffering from bouts of depression, self-destructive drinking and hidden anguish. Heilpern shares his insights on the writer’s profound influence, as well as his troubled, and sometimes cruel, personality.
