For more than four decades, Frank Langella has enjoyed a singular life and career. This extremely versatile actor is also a brilliant writer with a perceptive eye and a gift for the telling detail. "Dropped Names: Famous Men and Women As I Knew Them" is a collection of illuminating portraits of the people he has met and known as well as deeply revealing memories told with a rare honesty. With sharp wit and a skillful narrative style, Langella affectingly limns portraits of lost friends, enemies, idols and liaisons that are funny, moving, wicked, sometimes shocking and totally addictive. Woven throughout are the threads of his own experiences, from his early years in Bayonne, New Jersey, to his most recent successes. An entertaining and totally compelling read, "Dropped Names" is a mesmerizing performance from a dazzling and original talent. We are taken on an exceptional journey with scores of renowned souls, now lost to us, but Langella's ability to contrast their public personas with their private selves brings them back to vivid life.
