First I'll take you back to my schooldays and reveal the technique I developed for estimating the height of a girl before daring to ask her to dance. I'll explain how I first met David Frost, John Cleese and Michael Palin, and shamelessly reveal how I once played Othello to Danny La Rue's Desdemona, having just had dinner with Laurence Olivier. I'll also tell you about the time I was suddenly struck down by a mysterious illness that destroyed my sense of balance and prevented me from going on stage for several years. Altogether I must admit. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Entertainment & Performing Arts, Personal Memoirs; ISBN: . ISBN/EAN: 9780091879174.

SYNOPSIS: Written together with friend and journalist Boyd Hilton, the audiobook follows a year in the lives of Matt Lucas and David Walliams in every unfiltered detail - the good, the bad, the mundane and the meaningful. It is a year that includes writing, rehearsing, filming, Live8, going to America, and undertaking a mammoth 100-date, seven-month tour where Little Britain goes in search of Great Britain. They visit the places that have inspired their best-loved characters and also formed each of them personally - from where they grew up to university and drama school. Reflecting on how they got from there to here, they look back on a journey from cult comedy success to rock-star levels of celebrity; a new world where magazines are constantly fighting for access to them and the tabloids obsess about every detail of their private lives.

Singing from the Soul : An Autobiography
Carreras, Josť,
ISBN: 9780285632301
Souvenir Press Ltd, London, 1994. 1st Edition
 Soft cover Soft cover. Very Good/. 1st Edition. 280 pages. This book is in very good or better condition. It has no tears to the pages and no pages are missing from the book. The spine of the book is still in great condition. The front cover has some bumps and marks. It has signs of previous use but overall is in really nice, tight condition. Some blue spots on bottom edge. Items are shipped same day or next business day and are shipped directly from our Australian address. SYNOPSIS: Carreras is the third of today's trio of famous operatic tenors and friends (the others being Luciano Pavarotti and Placido Domingo) to write an autobiography. Tremendous worldwide interest followed the announcement of his sudden, life-threatening bout with leukemia in 1987 that forced him to withdraw from singing for a year. Carreras's account of this and subsequent events, from a successful bone marrow transplant in Seattle to triumphant post-recovery recitals in Barcelona and Vienna, is compelling. The elements of great talent, fame, tragedy, and miraculous recovery, combined with the author's zest for life, should earn Carreras the author a new audience, while renewing interest in his many fine recordings. This is the first book on Carreras available in English. Especially recommended for public libraries and for music collections. Quantity Available: 1.
