Carey Harrison And 'Who Was That Lady?"

  Our next guest’s background is so fascinating – it is hard to know where to begin. Prize-winning novelist, playwright, theater director and actor Carey Harrison was born in London in February 1944, during the World War Two 'Blitz' that rained down bombs on the city. His parents, stage and screen actors Rex Harrison and Lilli Palmer, brought him to Los Angeles when he was a year old, and then to New York when he was 5.


  He completed his education in the UK, at boarding school and at Cambridge University, where he received an Honours Degree, and a Masters Degree, in English. For the past 17 years he has been Professor of English at the City University of New York and he lives in Woodstock, NY.

He has published five novels, including Richard's Feet, longlisted for the Booker Prize and winner of the UK Society of Authors' Encore Award. His latest is Who Was That Lady?
