There is one indispensable book on directing, and it is a quick and
enjoyable read. It's by Sidney Lumet, ON MOVIES, if I recall correctly. (My
reference books are not at hand). It has everything you need for a good

>Barba, Eugenio - The FLoating Islands (Denmark,[publisher unknown], 1979)

>Barba, Eugenio - The Paper Canoe (New York, Routledge, 1995)
>
>Christofferson, Erik Exe - The Actor's Way (New York, Routledge, 1993)
>     May be useful from the actor's point of view.
