About the Author

Jim Sharman is an international director of film, musicals and theatre. His credits include the stage production of The Rocky Horror Show, which he later directed for 20th Century Fox. He has worked in Australia, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States, and his other credits include the musicals Hair and Jesus Christ Superstar. His stage work has encompassed more than seventy productions, including opera (Don Giovanni, Voss, Death in Venice), classics (Shakespeare, Strindberg, Wedekind, Brecht) and much of the stage and screen work of Nobel Laureate Patrick White. He lives in Sydney.


"In Blood and Tinsel Sharman wonderfully evokes this world of the sideshow alley, the smell of linseed oil and farm animal shit at agricultural shows, the bluff, blokey universe of boxing with its blood, sweat and brutal urgency, all choreographed to the beating of a bass drum. --Australian Literary Review
