Timothy West has led a charmed life as an actor: Rarely out of work, moving effortlessly between TV and stage, film and recordings, he is perhaps most famous for his television portrayals of Edward VII and as patriarch Bradley Hardacre in the hit TV series Brass. With his wife, Prunella Scales, and now his son, Samuel, the West family have provided many memorable moments in theatre, film and television. Timothy West's early years as a young actor read like a map of a now vanished landscape: box-office at Frinton, assistant stage manager at Newquay, weekly rep at Hull, a two-year contract at Salisbury...and meanwhile coping with a small child and a manic depressive first wife. Soon the parts get meatier, and the venues better known: the West End, the Royal Shakespeare Company, performing Dickens and Dostoyevsky on television, and a stint running the Old Vic, which includes coping with Peter O'Toole and his disastrous ideas for Macbeth...

Wise, extremely funny and replete with beguiling stories...a book which contains enough humanity and insight to guarantee its success. --Birmingham Post
