Read full description of the books:
A New York Times Notable Book from an Oscar award-winning icon.
These journal entries are comprised of Sir Alec Guinness's observations on Britain during the tumultuous times of Princess Diana's death and the election of Tony Blair, and comments on his quintessentially English country life with his wife. Written from the summer of 1996 through 1998, A Positively Final Appearance is a follow-up to the best-selling My Name Escapes Me. Guinness offers frank (and surprising) reflections on the effects of appearing in the Star Wars films, and both hilarious and poignant memories of such well-known performers as Humphrey Bogart and Noel Coward. This delightful, humorous journal is a wonderful legacy from a beloved actor.
"Sly, witty, elegant . . . buoyant, vivid, and brave."--The New York Times Book Review
"Simply, deliciously funny."--The Washington Post
"Reading Guinness is like finally sitting down and soaking in the wisdom of the grandparent you never seem to have time for. And we may never see the likes of him again."--Chicago Sun-Times
