Kiss Me Like a Stranger: My Search for Love and Art
Kiss Me Like a Stranger: My Search for Love and Art
Price: £4.72

5.0 out of 5 stars a gentle hero., 26 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gene Wilder is one of my comic acting heroes and I feel that I've grown to know him a little more through this excellent and candid memoir. My on,y real criticism is that he does not go into enough details when his professional life really took off and I would have loved to have known far more details within his acting and writing, especially Young Framkenstein! Delightfully easy to read, like an old friend whom even though you don't see for ages you simply take up exactly where you left off in such a familiar fashion. Kismet,like,a stranger...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best reads in years!!, 21 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly, I of course of an age to identify and empathise with the author in some of his age guises but it is the masterly way he relates the often horrific circumstances with alluring detail and humour that only a child can share. Wen I read the Italian translated book 'I'm Not Scared' by Niccolo Ammaniti and translated by Jonathan Hunt there was a similar feel and point of view, but Mitchell's take on how amid what his child self thinks is just way way more genuine, simply more believable voice of a child at various ages of understanding on what happens in the real world of adults rather than the author trying perhaps too hard to do that.
This was literally a page turner for me, the experiences heartbreaking and equally hilarious and I really can't think of a better written book in terms of childhood memoires, memories, interpretation of circumstances and happenings misunderstood during childhood, especially in terms of a child's perception of mental illness, alcoholism, family, love and fear. The book weirdly makes sense of the complexities of a tangled childhood coloured with abuse, emotional desperation and family love. Highly recommended.

Simply best value for money juicer out there. This really does keep the nutrients within the juice, relatively easy to clean and use.
