Roger Lewis News


Roger Lewis (b. 26 February 1960), a former Fellow of Wolfson College at Oxford University, is the biographer of Anthony Burgess. Lewis's controversial book, Anthony Burgess: A Life, was published in 2002. Critics could not decide whether it was an out-and-out hatchet job, a complicated form of tribute, or both. Lewis himself said in an interview, when pressed why he ignored Burgess' extensive correspondence at the University of Texas, he 'didn’t want to go through all that. I felt there was no use.'

Lewis has also published books on Laurence Olivier and Peter Sellers (The Life and Death of Peter Sellers, 1994) and the Carry On actor Charles Hawtrey (Charles Hawtrey: the man who was Private Widdle, 2001).

Lewis is married, and has three sons, and two daughters.
