9780755314898: The Moon's a Balloon

One of the bestselling memoirs of all time, David Niven's The Moon's a Balloon is an account of one of the most remarkable lives Hollywood has ever seen. Beginning with the tragic early loss of his aristocratic father, then regaling us with tales of school, army and wartime hi-jinx, Niven shows how, even as an unknown young man, he knew how to live the good life. But it is his astonishing stories of life in Hollywood and his accounts of working and partying with the legends of the silver screen - Lawrence Oliver, Vivien Leigh, Cary Grant, Elizabeth Taylor, James Stewart, Lauren Bacall, Marlene Dietrich, Noel Coward and dozens of others, while making some of the most acclaimed films of the last century - which turn David Niven's memoir into an outright masterpiece. An intimate, gossipy, heartfelt and above all charming account of life inside Hollywood's dream factory, The Moon is a Balloon is a classic to be read and enjoyed time and again..

About the Author:

David Niven was born in London in 1910. He was one of Britain's best known actors and, in later years, a bestselling author - his autobiography, The Moon's A Balloon which was first published in 1971, sold over 5 million copies worldwide. Often remembered for playing the archetypal English gentleman, he made ninety films during a career that stretched over forty years. He died in 1983.

Review:

An immensely enjoyable, witty and racy memoir. * Sunday Times * Forthright, bawdy, and often hilarious, zany and zestful, his anecdotes should keep you entertained for hours. * Sunday Express * Niven's life was Wodehouse with tears. -- John Mortimer
