Description

Sir Peter Ustinov's beautifully crafted autobiography is told with exquisite wit and insight. From his birth in April 1921, it spans his extraordinary career as actor, playwright, film star and director, confirming his early belief that he is 'irrevocably betrothed to laughter'. Ustinov's renowned gift for mimicry is exploited to the full in "Dear Me". Eccentric relatives, school masters, sergeant majors and manic Hollywood moguls are all brought unforgettably to life.show more
