Author(s): Michael Caine
Michael Caine is the best-loved film actor Britain has ever produced. Here, for the first time, he reveals the truth about his childhood, his family and his hard-fought journey from London to Hollywood, bringing to life the lean years and the triumphs with astonishing candour. And with typical charm and humour he talks about the movies, about his relationships on and off the screen with other actors and directors, and about the memorable screen presence which is his hallmark.
The original autobiography of one of the most versatile, enduring and beloved British actors of our time, re-issued with a striking new package.
Written with just the right mix of warmth and candour, and in a prose style that is the literary equivalent of his easy-going, up-front persona, this is hugely enjoyable. A super book that informs as much as it entertains."
"It has taken two decades to get a man back on the Moon, and the man is Michael Caine. Niven's influence as a writer runs rights through it... some genuinely vintage laughs."
"Caine gives his public value for money, covering his whole life with David Nivenish charm."
Michael Caine has starred in over one hundred films, and is one of only two actors to have been nominated for an Academy Award for acting in every decade since the 1960s. He lives in London and Oxfordshire with his wife, Shakira. He has two daughters.
