Customer Review

on 10 August 1999
Like oh-so-many people, I discovered Tom Baker through "Doctor Who", which I discovered as a boy. His intense, larger than life portrayal really made an impression on me, and as I became an adult I was lucky enough to experience him in other wonderful performances (Puddleglum in "The Silver Chair", his haunting readings of Dickens.) Now I am also an actor and eccentric, and I found a lot to identify with in this book. His low self-esteem and difficulty in social situation made me nod in sympathy, and his stories of life in the theater were endlessly interesting. His bawdy humor made me laugh out loud frequently. My only quibbles are with the disjointed, time-hopping style (the opening anecdote about his son Piers and a waiter who may be Anthony Hopkins is never resolved!) and the lack of more information about "Who" (although I understand his reluctance to write any further on a subject about which he has already said so much) and Lalla Ward (on whom I have a huge, hopeless crush.)
