Description

Sir Alec Guiness was one of the greatest actors of the twentieth centuries. With a talent recognised by discerning critics from his very first appearance on the stage, he gained a world-wide reputation.

After his death in August 2000, his widow Merula asked the author Piers Paul Read, who had been a friend of her husband, to write his biography. Given full co-operation by the Guinness family and free access to Sir Alec's papers, including his private and unpublished diaries, Read has produced the definitive portrait: a highly entertaining and penetrating account of an intriguing and complex man.
