Thanks to Director Jerry London, playing John Blackthorn in James Clavell’s Shõgun was perhaps the high point in my long career. In his new book, From I Love Lucy to Shogun . . . and Beyond, Jerry brings back a deluge of exciting memories of our six-and-a-half-month shoot in Japan, . . . Jerry not only created one of the finest shows ever to grace TV, he now writes about that fabulous experience with wit and charm.
Jerry London is a legend in our business. He writes the way he directs, with pace and energy, and tells a great story. . . . This is a glorious read!
Brilliant! I couldn’t put it down. . . . This book is for anyone who has ever wondered what goes on on a set when the cameras aren’t rolling! A laugh-out-loud page turner.
Jerry London, one of the most iconic directors and editors of television, has given us a book that will make you laugh and understand, and bring you insight into the art of storytelling through the medium that changed the world.
Jerry . . . is one of a handful of superheroes in my life who convinced me that hard work should have an abundance of joy in it or it isn’t worth the candle. What a great, fun-loving, attractive, good friend he was those many years ago.
