9780140105384: A Postillion Struck by Lightning (Dirk Bogarde's Autobiography)

Dirk Bogarde's first volume of autobiography, published originally in 1977, traces the first steps of a young actor who went on to achieve worldwide acclaim. It details not only his early stage experiences, but also some evocative scenes from his childhood in Sussex, where his family lived in a cottage in the South Downs. Later came a technical college in Glasgow, an apprenticeship in printing, an art education at Chelsea, and finally a scholarship to the Old Vic - just as war broke out. Other volumes of his autobiography are: "Snakes and Ladders", "An Orderly Man" and "Backcloth".

Read but well kept. The first volume in legendary actor Dirk Bogarde's funny, sad, anecdotal and quite exceptionally well-written autobiography was an immediate bestseller. (bio)

This best-seller marked Dirk Bogarde s transition from star of stage and screen to internationally acclaimed author."

This engaging memoir tells of Bogarde's childhood amidst the enchanting beauty of rural Sussex...followed by his forays on to the stage with the local amateur dramatic society...and his experiences as a young actor before he became world-famous. SUNDAY TELEGRAPH"
