Henry Holt and Co. describe the upcoming book as “Like listening to Rickman chat with a close companion.”

Meet Rickman the accomplished professional actor, but also the friend, the traveler, the fan, the director, the enthusiast; in short, the man beyond the icon,” describes Henry Holt and Co. of the upcoming book.

The book presents Rickman’s reflections on the Harry Potter series, including how it thinks about not continuing to play the role of Severus Snapealongside many other opinions on the franchise.

The Hollywood Reporter shared an audiobook excerpt narrated by Enoch, which may be listened and read online. Enoch discusses Rickman’s first film encounters, how he met his future wife, and his role in the Harry Potter movies.

The first decade of the new century was largely devoted to the eight-movie Harry Potter series. He played Severus Snape, the famously grumpy professor with a ready mind, a role he’s become synonymous with, and one that dramatically lowered the average age of his burgeoning fanbase.
