Excellent biography of Potter. Good summaries of his main body of work.
Dennis Potter's death in 1994 deprived British television of its most controversial figure. Potter was a prolific writer of genius. Yet while his subversive television plays. The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged. This book has clearly been well maintained and looked after thus far.

Media studies departments will find this useful, but Dennis would have slaughtered it. The book wholly fails to capture the spirit of a very difficult, tormented, hugely talented man who changed the way we look at ourselves through television. Julian Mitchell, The Spectator.

Carpenter, Humphrey (1998) Dennis Potter: A Biography, Faber & Faber. ISBN 0 - 571 - 17685 - 2 Price £2. 0. The long-awaited and highly controversial "authorised" biography, commissioned by the Potter Estate and written by "the acclaimed biographer of J. R. Tolkein, . Auden, Ezra Pound, Benjamin Britain and Robert Runcie". Whatever criticisms can be brought to bear on this book, one thing must be admitted from the outset. Carpenter has done an encyclopaedic job of bringing together in a comparatively short space of time a wealth of material on Dennis Potter. Admittedly he had the full resource of the estate behind him, but even so he covers Potter's life, career and work in immense detail and in a highly readable style.
The biography begins with Potter's childhood in the Forest of Dean, through a highly political Oxford career and his marriage to his childhood and lifelong sweetheart. After this comes the work, a mutated hybrid of Potter's own life and a dream world constructed from songs and sexual fantasies. Carpenter treads carefully; there are still many living friends and relatives, and some of the material is emotionally complex
