520 1  "John Schlesinger's career in cinema, stage, opera, and 
       television spanned half a century. It was, however, his 
       films that made him famous, including such classics as 
       Midnight Cowboy, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Marathon Man, Billy
       Liar, Darling, and Day of the Locust, to The Falcon and 
       the Snowman, Madame Sousatzka, Pacific Heights, Cold 
       Comfort Farm, Separate Tables, and An Englishman Abroad." 
       "In Edge of Midnight, author and historian William J. Mann
       chronicles Schlesinger's life and career, from his early 
       documentary days at the BBC, to his emergence as one of 
       the four Angry Young Men of British film in the 1960s 
       (along with Lindsay Anderson, Karel Reisz, and Tony 
       Richardson) who sought to bring working class issues to 
       the screen, to his Academy Award for the X-rated Midnight 
       Cowboy and his glittering nights as a Hollywood host, to 
       his death on July 24, 2003, brought on by a massive stroke
       two years earlier." "In writing this authorized biography,
       Mann received the full cooperation of Schlesinger himself,
       as well as that of his family and his companion of 36 
       years, Michael Childers. In addition, he was granted 
       complete access to tapes, diaries, production notes, and 
       correspondence, as well as interviews with many of the 
       actors, crew members, friends, and colleagues who shared 
       their thoughts and memories."--BOOK JACKET.
