Peggy Ramsay, the influential British play agent who nurtured several generations of Britain's most important playwrights, was one of the most unforgettable individuals of the English-speaking theatre in this century. Given Peggy's blessing, Colin Chambers was granted complete freedom of access to all the records and correspondence accumulated over the forty years of her agency's existence, including hundreds of impassioned letters between Peggy and her authors. He has also benefited from the willing cooperation of her clients and has delved deeply into her early life, bringing to light a good many new and surprising aspects of this multifaceted woman whose ability to nurture talent is unlikely to be equaled for many a decade. Filled with uproarious anecdotes and delicious backstage gossip, "Peggy" makes for thrilling reading that will titillate anyone in love with theatre.
