From the Publisher:

This is the long-awaited autobiography of one of Britain's best-loved and most internationally successful actors. By turns funny, charming, and poignant, here is Michael Crawford's vivid account of his war-torn childhood of a loving mother, violent stepfather, and the painfully revealed truth about his absent father. His early memories include being taught to sing by the great composer Benjamin Britten, and later, when he entered show business, his friendships with David Hemmings, John Lennon, and Oliver Reed. There are also stories of Crawford "making a fool of himself" in front of idols Gene Kelly and Barbra Streisand while filming "Hello Dolly." Starring in "Barnum" and "The Phantom of the Opera," Crawford became a huge international star, but this engaging memoir rarely strays from the honest and self-deprecating qualities that have endeared him to his many fans.

About the Author:

Crawford began his professional career as a boy soprano in Benjamin Britten's Let's Make An Opera. He became the popular star of Not So Much a Programme, More a Way of Life and starred in The Knack. He juggled film and stage careers, appearances including Hello Dolly!, the long-running comedy No Sex Please - We're British and the 70s TV comedy Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em - which is still running around the world. He starred in, among many other things, the John Barry hit musical Billy, the 1981 hit Broadway musical Barnum and the widely acclaimed Phantom of the Opera. More recently, he appeared in Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Woman in White in London's West End. His solo recording career began in 1992 and his three albums have all been huge runaway successes earning him gold and platinum discs. He has been awarded many honours including the OBE.

Descrizione libro Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2000. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. By turns hilarious, revelatory and desperately sad, here is the autobiography of the man whose TV and stage appearances such as Hello Dolly!, Some Mothers Do Ave Em and The Phantom of the Opera have made him a national institution. The story of the true identity of his father, which is behind this book s title, leads into an evocative depiction of his tender childhood years. Whilst all the men were away at war, Crawford was surrounded by loving women. For him this was an idyllic wartime childhood, but the return of the men in peacetime signalled darker times to come. Crawford s infectious enjoyment of stage work illumines his account of his early struggles to make a name for himself in the theatre business, and his early failures with girls are lifted by his abiding sense of the absurd. Both in his private life and his work as a successful actor and TV comedian, he begins a lifetime s habit of pratfalls that he would later turn to good use in the character of Frank Spencer in smash hit 1970s TV comedy show Some Mothers Do Ave Em. His talent for mimicry makes the great personalities in his life come alive on the page; people he has worked with, including Benjamin Britten who taught him to sing, John Lennon - with whom he shared a villa - and Oliver Reed, Michael Winner, Barbra Steisand, Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra.
