"(a) wise, funny memoir"

Reflecting on the help he was given during his 60-year career by actors such as Tony Curtis, Laurence Olivier and Marlene Dietrich, Caine decided to share his life lessons.

This wise, funny memoir is the result. He regards his family as his most important achievement: ‘Glitz, glamour and stardust are all very well, but they cannot give you a warm, sticky-fingered hug on a rainy night,’ he concludes.
