About the Author

Frederic Raphael is a screenwriter, biographer, non-fiction writer, novelist and journalist. He lives in France.


'There are things to delight and savour on almost every page of this rich memoir... For anyone of a certain age, this book offers the deep purring pleasure of nostalgia; for younger readers a picture of a lost world, distant from today's corporate publishing. I loved it, and look forward to a sequel, and Raphael's sweet-and-sour memories of the Sixties and his Oscar-winning days.' - The Telegraph; '[Raphael's] firework eloquence is dazzling... All [his] writings show a quick sensitivity to dialogue and hidden meanings. The people in his memoirs, like the characters in his novels, bound off the page into life - boisterous, punchy and gloriously funny.' - The Mail on Sunday; 'No thresher has been more enthusiastic in reducing the cornfield of others' reputations to size ... A hugely entertaining book'. - The Guardian; 'A hugely intelligent memoir ... Tremendously good'. - The Times
