My name escapes me: the diary of a retiring actor


One of the most outstanding & beloved actors of his generation, now in his eighties, shares an eighteen-month diary of his present life. Although the entries focus a keen eye on contemporary events, they also open to a past replete with fascinating memories & anecdotes from his long career.

First published in 1996, these excerpts from Alec Guinness’ diaries cover a period of about 18 months from January 1995. Combining wit, anecdotes and observation, the topics range from the National Lottery to Ralph Richardson, from the Catholic Church to the Hampshire countryside.
