(Nobody's Perfect is an unforgettable collection of Lane's...)
Nobody's Perfect is an unforgettable collection of Lane's trademark wit, satire, and insight that will satisfy both the long addicted and the not so familiar.
Anthony Lane studied at Sherborne School. He also graduated from Trinity College, Cambridge, with a degree in English.
After education, Anthony Lane was hired by Tina Brown to the Independent, where he was a deputy literary editor in 1989-1993. Then, in 1991, he became a Sunday film critic and served in that position for two years. In 1993 Lane started to work at the New Yorker as a film critic. He continues to live in London but makes frequent trips to New York.
Besides, Anthony Lane is a writer. His book, Nobody's Perfect: Writings from the New Yorker, brings together ten years of Lane's criticism, with commentary and an introduction describing his initial experiences occupying the late Pauline Kael s office at the New Yorker. In addition to his views on films such as Forrest Gump, which he disliked, and Titanic, which he liked, the pieces include book reviews and a few profiles of cultural figures such as Nabokov and Buster Keaton, and even a part on the joys of playing with Legos.
