Marking his 60th birthday, this is the autobiography of Sheridan Morley, the British theatre biographer and critic. Born the weekend of Pearl Harbour in 1941, Sheridan Morley grew up in California in the closing days of the Hollywood Raj, where he knew, albeit fleetingly, Garbo and Dietrich and the colony of English actors "out in the midday sun". He went to school in England, and then Oxford University, followed by the start of his life in news and arts journalism and as a drama critic and biographer. He recounts tales of so many well-known faces in the media and theatre worlds, during a life of two marriages, three children, two grandchildren, one major nervous crack-up and 30 years of BBC radio arts programmes.
