    Fosse Epub Ü Hardcover fosse ebok, Fosse MOBIAfter reviewing the entertaining FX miniseries FosseVerdon a month ago I became very curious about the book the show was based on Sam Wasson’s biography of the legendary director and choreographer Bob Fosse I’m glad I read it even though carrying the thick brick of a book around practically dislocated my shoulderI’ve always loved what I’d seen of Fosse’s work the film version of Cabaret arguably the best movie musical ever made the sleek sexy long running revival of Chicago

    Fosse Epub Ü Hardcover fosse ebok, Fosse MOBIOne of the biggest problems with a book about a dancerchoreographer is that no matter how colourful the descriptions and Wasson REALLY likes description you can’t see the performances I found myself going over and over again to YouTube to look for clips so that I could actually see what was being described I almost wished that this had been done as a documentary rather than a written biographyMy background – in addition to writing – is in theatre and my love for Broadway k

    Fosse Epub Ü Hardcover fosse ebok, Fosse MOBIIn some ways I think I know the author of Fosse Sam Wasson about as well as he wants us to know the mercurial obsessed geniusfraudfriendlovermotherfucker that apparently was Bob Fosse As much as Fosse possessed others in his ceaseless search for art through love or was it love through art? Wasson is equally obsessed with his subject seemingly trying to creep into his skin to bring us as well to be co inhabitants with him so that he and we trudge merrily along through the emotional wreckage of Fosse's life He often succeeds in letting us inside this very complex artist but I would have wished for of the journalist's or historian's craft in writing this story Example the book begins with the first chapter heading Sixty so we know this is a countdown in years to a death foretold Well and good But when he does die so does the book The women wives lovers and lovers his daughter his coterie of friends even his shows

    Fosse Epub Ü Hardcover fosse ebok, Fosse MOBII have never been so happy to come to the end of a book as I was when Fosse ended It is a well researched and written book but I so disliked Bob Fosse after the first 5 pages that it wouldn't matter how brilliantly the book was written I have been watching clips of his dances between reading the book and have enjoyed those immensely but as a person I couldn't stand him an

    Fosse Epub Ü Hardcover fosse ebok, Fosse MOBIThe only reason I read this was because of the Yearly Reading Challenge Rad Reads through my Facebook group Pop Culture bookclub Definitely would not have picked this up otherwise I didn't know who Bob Fosse was before this book and while I have a great idea now I wasn't really impressed with his character Fosse was certainly an ingenious choreographer and director but as a human? He was kind of a dumpster fire I'm also really surprised he even made it to 60 with all his health issues and the crazy amount of cigarettes he went through Overall this was an okay story Wasson did a very good job being thorough but at the same time I'm like who cares?? Cause I certainly did not I think I would've rather seen this as a documentary There's only so much a book can do for a reader to visualize dance and it's something I'd rather actually consume with my eyes on a screen

    Fosse Epub Ü Hardcover fosse ebok, Fosse MOBIHaving watched All That Jazz on HBO in my tween years I have been a Bob Fosse fan for over half my life I've wanted to read this book since it came out it's been in my pile for two years and since the FX miniseries aired this spring I figured it was time to dig it out of my pile and get crackingWhat a wonderful time in which we live when we can go to YouTube and watch a clip from a movie or a TV ad or Liza With A Z with just a few clicks Supplementing this book with that material just made it that much better Author Sam Wasson is a thorough chronicler 589 pages of text and copious end notes but he has that tendency to slip into hipster speak taking the reader out of the narrative and inserting himself instead It wasn't Nick Tosches in Dino bad but I still prefer a little less folderol A
