Free books to read or listen online in a convenient form, a large collection, the best authors and series. The latest volume of Dirk Bogarde's autobiography. I learned very early on in my life that nothing was for ever; so I should have been aware of disillusion in early middle age: but, somehow, we try to obliterate early warnings and go cantering along hopefully, idiotically. No matter that the tide will turn once again and destroy all that you build (and.

Having grown up in England, I was very familiar with Dirk Bogarde and his many films. I have already read his two preceding autobiographies, "A Postillion Struck by Lightning" and "Snakes and Ladders." Not only a terrific actor, he is an amazing writer. His many connections in the theatrical world make for fascinating stories and his descriptive abilities really take you there.
I love this book and am looking forward to the next in the series.

Charming raconeteur Bogarde compiled this verbose series of essays about his "orderly" life straddling Europe and the Unites States...country gentleman and film star. He recounts incidents with wit and candor, such as the decline and deaths of his elderly parents and the struggles in making & marketing his film "The Night Porter." And yet, there is strangely (and disappointingly) very little of the man, himself, revealed in any of this. Other than the fact that he seems alternately laconic and easily annoyed, the reader is never given a sense of what Bogarde the man is really all about. This is certainly a book you CAN put down and pick up again later. I suspect a closer look at the real Dirk Bogarde can be found in his excellent film, "Despair."
