This really is a great autobiography. Tim Rice delivers a witty, engaging, and surprisingly insightful look at musical theatre in general and his experiences in particular. Even though it's been a few years since I've even touched it, many of the lines and quips in this book have stayed with me and they have certainly enhanced my enjoyment of his early musicals (Joseph, Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita). This book is rather like listening to an old, likable friend telling you amusing stories from his life, and perhaps throwing you a pearl of wisdom every now and then.
The book begins with Rice's childhood and ends with the opening of Evita on the West End. I've heard rumors that he's working on a sequel book to continue the story from there and I honestly can't wait!
Barring some inexplicable market-forces that would make this book some sort of collectible, I expect that it will continue to be dirt cheap from the time I'm writing this review to the time you're reading it...so shell out the few pennies and buy yourself a fun read!
