Über diesen Titel


Robert Morley is enjoying the pleasures of age - from breakfast in bed to climbing the Matterhorn in celebration of his 70th birthday - and, like many writers before him, is sharing his knowledge, experiences and memories in this book. The author has appeared in more than fifty plays, many of them his own, and in more than a hundred films. His "Book of Bricks" was a best-seller.

From Publishers Weekly:

British actor Morley ( Around the World in 80 Days and many other films) spreads joy with this ebullient memoir. In his 80s and retired, he chronicles the "pleasures of survival," while not denying its "aches, fears and pain." He stresses, however, that elderly people have great advantages over the young, of whom so much is demanded, while he and his peers can relax; happily anticipate each day's sunrise; play with grandchildren; and chat with friends about the newest frozen-food marvels ("Have you tried the salmon mousse?"). Morley speaks fondly of his wife, praises his son Sheridan, the distinguished biographer, his late mother-in-law, the actress Gladys Cooper, and a host of others, without dramatizing his own notable accomplishments. He also quotes the likes of Santayana, Plato, Kipling et al., who agree with him on the pleasures of age. Photos.

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
