A wonderful and warm piece of writing,
This review is from: My Name is Daphne Fairfax: A Memoir (Hardcover)Clichéd though it may be, this is such an easy book to read and so hard to put down. A rarity in that it is a "celebrity autobiography" in which the author beautifully describes the humanity of his life and experiences, rather than merely regurgitating a series of slightly salacious and dull anecdotes.
Having finished My Name is Daphne Fairfax, you can't help but feel that you know the author personally and, he is someone you actually like!
In his version of Hamlet, Arthur advised - before you speak, consider whether what you have to say is better than silence. A principal he has applied to writing this memoir and not a word is wasted.
Without doubt, the best biography I have read in a very long time.
