Look back with loathing

John Osborne was one of Britain's most celebrated playwrights,

seen as the original Angry Young Man.

 

His biographer John Heilpern

describes Osborne's cruel treatment of his daughter, Nolan,

who talks for the first time about the father who threw her out

when she was 17 and never spoke to her again
