Kevin MacNeil’s A Method Actor’s Guide to Jekyll and Hyde (2010) just came to my attention (a Christmas present). For those of you, like me, who hadn’t noticed it before, here’s a summary from Amazon:
After a bike crash in a foggy Edinburgh, troubled young actor Robert Lewis wakes to find that life has changed for the darker. And the weirder. He’s still a deceitful egoist but now life seems to be deceiving and manipulating him. Everything that can go wrong is going wrong. He’s losing control of his love life, his starring role in a new adaptation of Jekyll and Hyde, and, quite possibly, his mind. ‘A Method Actor’s Guide to Jekyll and Hyde’ is a dark, maniacal thriller that explores many kinds of duality – individual, social and cultural, and is a heartfelt tale about the search for belonging and the nature of love and desire. It is also bloody funny.
The book looks great – I’ll try and have a review up in the next month.
