Gold Gato, April 12, 2014 (view all comments by Gold Gato)
This first volume in the trio of memoirs by Alec Guinness ranks high on my list as one of the best memoirs I've read. The writing equates to the acting of Guinness...refined, detailed, absorbing. In fact, it wasn't until I first read this book that I became a fan of his film acting (usually it's the other way around).

He has a sense of humour throughout and he describes the heck out of everything. Very enjoyable. Along with David Niven's books, this is one of the few autobiographies I would ever consider re-reading.
