Críticas:

"For anyone who loves, loves, loves the theater...a finely observed, deeply felt (and deeply dishy) time-traveling escape. . . . Just grab a quilt and a stack of pillows. No need for a delectable assortment of bonbons. They're in the book." --"The New York Times Book Review"
"Splendid, lively. . . . An immensely satisfying memoir, of rare grace, good humor, and unapologetic self-honesty. . . . In tact and generosity of spirit, it is the very model of what a memoir should be." --"The Daily Beast "
"A staggering parade of theater-world luminaries struts, swaggers, and yes, occasionally staggers through this compulsively readable memoir. . . . [Plummer] has a tasty anecdote about onstage, backstage, or drinking-hole doings about every single one of them." --"The New York Times"
"Rich and riotous. . . . He seems to have been everywhere--including inside almost every room of the Hotel du Cap on the French Riviera--and known everyone." --Jennifer Schuessler, "The New York Times"
"The veteran actor's delightfully sprawling account of his life and career." --"USA Today"
"[A] fascinating memoir. . . . The book records so many trysts, pratfalls, drunken evenings--and afternoons--that it's amazing he has survived. . . . Amply shows how Mr. Plummer has managed a long, successful career in spite of himself." --"The""Wall Street Journal"
"In spite of himself-his relentlessly high artistic principles; his penchant for playing the underdog, even when he was the star; his keen ear equally attuned to the precision of Elizabethan verse and to what passes as truth across a whiskey at 5 a.m. . . . this man has experienced a life rich in textures, and he is able to give most of them glorious voice. His is a life in the theater lived hard and true, in the grand tradition of those distinguished players who went before, whom he surely made proud. Good sir! I raise my glass to you." --Alex Witchel, "The New York Times Book Review"

Reseña del editor:

A vibrant, exuberant self-portrait of one of today’s greatest living actors.

Christopher Plummer’s magnificent book recounts the wild adventure that is his life, stretching from a privileged childhood in Canada to the glorious, star-studded New York of the fifties to a sensational career in film appearing in some of our most beloved classics. Here are his late nights out with Carson McCullers, Tennessee Williams, Paddy Chayefsky, and Arthur Miller; his affairs and marriages; his collaborations with famed producers; and his memorable roles alongside fellow young and talented actors, each also destined for stardom: Judi Dench, Vanessa Redgrave, Peter O’Toole, Natalie Wood, and countless others. Plummer weaves delicious anecdotes of a life spent on stages and film sets across the world—from Peter Hall’s Royal Shakespeare Theatre toThe Sound of Music (affectionately dubbed “S&M”)—into a boisterous narrative filled with humor and irresistible charm.
