Book Description Penguin/Viking, New Delhi, India, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. Dev Anand is something of a Bollywood institution. His romantic persona, dialogue delivery, song picturizations and mannerisms are legend, and for generations of filmgoers he has remained Hindi cinema’s most charismatic personality.

Dev Anand has produced an unputdownable book chock-full of bittersweet reminiscences, written in a pacy, effervescent style that carries the reader through sixty of Bollywood’s most interesting years.
