Danny Boyle: Creating Wonder

by Amy Raphael
£12.99   paperback  Faber and Faber (2013)

Danny Boyle: Creating Wonder by Amy Raphael How did the director of acclaimed cult British films become an Oscar-winner and the driving force behind the defining cultural moment of 2012, the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympic Games?
 
In this revelatory career-length biography, produced through many hours of interviews with Danny Boyle, he talks frankly about the secrets behind the Opening Ceremony as well as the struggles, joys and perseverance needed to direct such well-loved films as Shallow Grave, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later, Sunshine and Slumdog Millionaire.
 
Throughout his career Danny Boyle has shown that he has an incredible knack of capturing the spirit of the times, be they the nineties drug scene, the aspirations of noughties Indian slum-dwellers or the things that make British people proud of their nation today, from the NHS to the Internet.
 
Starting out life in a Catholic working-class family in Lancashire in 1956, Boyle has proved himself a talented maverick who has fought to maintain his integrity against the odds.
