Description

ONE OF THE BESTSELLING MEMOIRS OF ALL TIME WITH OVER FIVE MILLION COPIES SOLD WORLDWIDE

Discover the heartfelt, laugh-out-loud account of one of Hollywood's greatest actors and, above all, greatest men


Debonair English wit and humourist extraordinaire, star of The Pink Panther , Casino Royal and Around the World in 80 Days , few Hollywood actors are remembered as fondly as David Niven.

In this bestselling autobiography, Niven shows how, even as an unknown young man, he knew how to live the good life, regaling us with tales of school expulsion and wartime hi-jinks. However, it is his accounts of working and partying with the legends of the silver screen - from Lawrence Oliver and Vivien Leigh to Elizabeth Taylor, Noel Coward and dozens of others - that turn this memoir into an outright masterpiece.

An intimate, gossipy, warm and above all charming account of life inside Hollywood's dream factory, The Moon is a Balloon is a classic to be read and enjoyed time and again.
