Book Description

30 Jun 2006
Born Maurice Micklewhite, son of a Billingsgate fish porter and a charlady, Michael Caine's life has been an extraordinary rollercoaster: from washing dishes and fighting on National Service, to winning two Oscars and being knighted by the Queen. With more than eighty films to his name, he has starred in some of the classics of modern cinema: as an action anti-hero in "Get Carter", a Cockney Lothario in "Alfie", and a disillusioned alcoholic academic in "Educating Rita". He is an enduring model of British cool. This authorised biography charts the amazing highs and lows in his turbulent ride to fame, fortune and respect.

My partner suffers from Macular Degeneration and can't even read the largest font on his Kindle now. I thought an audio book would be good. I bought several and Sir Michael Caine: The Biography is his favourite so far.
