9780140172126: An Orderly Man (Dirk Bogarde's Autobiography)

As work on Visconti's "Death in Venice" draws to a close, Dirk Bogarde is preparing his house in Provence as a retreat. This third volume of his autobiography also covers the years in which he gave some of his finest, most sensitive acting performances and began his career as a writer, imposing order on a rich and varied life. The other autobiographical volumes are: "A Postillion struck by Lightning", "Snakes and Ladders" and "Backcloth".

About the Author:

Sir Dirk Bogarde was an English actor and novelist. Initially a matinee idol, Bogarde later acted in art-house films such as Death In Venice. As well as completing six novels, Bogarde wrote several volumes of autobiography. Between 1947 and 1991, Bogarde made more than sixty films. For over two decades he lived in Italy and France, where he began to write seriously. In 1985 he was awarded an honorary degree of Doctor of Letters by the University of St Andrews and in 1990 was promoted to Commandeur de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French government.
