Regarded by many as the finest actor of his generation, Daniel Day-Lewis has become one of Hollywood's most bankable stars. His diverse performances in roles such as cerebral palsy sufferer Christy Brown in My Left Foot and Butcher Bill in Gangs of New York have cemented his reputation as a chameleon method actor. Yet behind the on-screen personas and theatrical masks lies a complex figure about whom relatively little is really known. Acclaimed biographer Laura Jackson has spoken to many close friends of the actor, including Dame Judi Dench and Simon Callow, and has provided us with a fascinating insight into this intense and talented star. As well as a wonderful portrait of his creative life, this book also reveals Day-Lewis's past relationships with his co-stars and how he has found happiness with Arthur Miller's daughter Rebecca. There are very few books about this reclusive and chameleon-like actor despite his award winning film roles and ever increasingly popularity. His new Oscar & Bafta nominated movie Lincoln is scheduled for UK release early 2013.

Popular media can spark the national consciousness in a way that captures people’s attention, interests them in history, and inspires them to visit battlefields, museums, and historic sites. This lively collection of essays and feature stories celebrates the novels, popular histories, magazines, movies, television shows, photography, and songs that have enticed Americans to learn more about our most dramatic historical era. From Ulysses S. Grant’s Memoirs to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, from Roots to Ken Burns’s The Civil War, from “Dixie” to “Ashokan Farewell,” and from Civil War photography to the Gettysburg Cyclorama, trendy and well-loved depictions of the Civil War are the subjects of twenty contributors who tell how they and the general public have been influenced by them. Sarah Kay Bierle examines the eternal appeal of Gone with the Wind and asks how it is that a protagonist who so opposed the war has become such a figurehead for it. H. R. Gordon talks with New York Times–bestselling novelist Jeff Shaara to discuss the power of storytelling. Paul Ashdown explores ColdMountain’s value as a portrait of the war as national upheaval, and Kevin Pawlak traces a shift in cinema’s depiction of slavery epitomized by 12 Years a Slave. Tony Horwitz revisits his iconic Confederates in the Attic twenty years later. The contributors’ fresh analysis articulates a shared passion for history’s representation in the popular media. The variety of voices and topics in this collection coalesces into a fascinating discussion of some of the most popular texts in the genres. In keeping with the innovative nature of this series, web-exclusive material extends the conversation beyond the book.
