I’m going to say something and you’ll think I’m making this up by I assure you I’m not. Ready? If you read this book you will be moved by descriptions of Marcel Marceau’s acts. Part meditation, part lyrical interpretation, part biography, Wan’s extended consideration of the world’s greatest mime is beautiful weird, like a photograph of a really leggy insect on a sharply outlined twig against a crisp woodland backdrop.
