Going beyond biography, Donald Dewey captures the wistful America of the 1940’s and ’50’s and the screen icon who symbolized it. Using quotes and anecdotes from family members, as well as from fellow WWII servicemen, Dewey draws an endearing and multidimensional view of Stewart, scene by scene, year by year. With polished ease and impeccable pacing, Parker brings listeners into each chapter and onto each movie set to glimpse Hollywood’s inner workings. Parker narrates with the same casual yet focused flair that characterized Stewart’s acting style. In this way, Parker lends an instant comfort and intimacy to the text and its subject, while giving Dewey’s writing center stage to engage and captivate the listener.
