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".
