From the publisher

A wise, playful and deeply personal new book by legendary theatre-maker Peter Brook, described by the Independent as 'our greatest living theatre director'. In Tip of the Tongue, Peter Brook takes a charming, playful and wise look at topics such as the subtle yet telling differences between French and English, and the many levels on which we can appreciate the works of Shakespeare. Brook also revisits his seminal concept of the 'empty space', considering how theatre - and the world - have changed over the span of his long and distinguished career. Threaded throughout with intimate and revealing stories from Brook's own life, Tip of the Tongue is a short but sparkling gift from one of the greatest artists of our time. 'Exquisite...enthralling...This short, modest and brilliant book does more than many more grandiose tomes to renew the reader's fascination with the plays, and the theatre-goer's wonder at the extraordinary and diverse sensations locked up inside the First Folio. It should be required reading at all universities and drama clubs.' Guardian on The Quality of Mercy
