Garson Kanin (1912-1999) was an American musician, actor, director, playwright, essayist, screenwriter, novelist, librettist and burlesque comedian known for his huge output and creative range. His first Broadway success came in the form of Broad Hitch Your Wagon (1936), which he directed. This kickstarted his career in theatre and led on to success in his own plays and screenplays, including A Double Life, Pat and Mike, A Leading Lady and A Very Rich Woman in the late 40s. In later life he wrote many short stories, six novels and non-fiction books – among them Blow Up a Storm, A Thousand Summers and Tracy and Hepburn: An Intimate Memoir.
