Steven Berkoff - writer, theatre director and actor

It’s a remarkable book and it takes not only time to read it but even longer to absorb it. It’s certainly a feast for the senses and sometimes so rich for one’s tastes that I had to put it down and digest for a while. The English language, Yannis says, has never thrilled him… It has no music. It does not sing. Well, he writes like one intoxicated with the sound, breath and depth of English syntax.

His mastery of our native tongue is astonishing. I suppose being a foreigner, he was determined to learn it but not to beat it into submission. The Russian Nabokov was another virtuoso who wrote like he was conducting an orchestra. Bless my Oxford dictionary.

Yannis’ book is a fascinating confession of his life, highly informative and should be made required reading for a student of modern Greek history. He also writes with such love for his country and that communicates itself throughout. Few English writers write like him about their nation. Mostly they write about how ghastly it has become, how class ridden and how culturally stale. George Orwell even parodies it in ‘1984’, and Dickens in the horror of the workhouse. I too had a multitude of jobs going from pillar to post before before language saved me by allowing me to feast on it as an Actor, then eventually as a playwright. I could only sum up his work as Homeric, if that’s not too poncey a description.

His is a journey which seems to last a lifetime and one feels it is not yet finished. Sometimes I see overlaps in my life with what I have read in his.

I also gained so much reading his constant references to Greek mythology and saw how much it informs Yannis’ life. His knowledge of the ancient and mystic past is formidable and yet he references it with consummate ease as if he drank it with his mother’s milk.
