Read by Philip Jackson with an introduction by Sean Bean.

After training as a teacher, Pete Postlethwaite started his acting career at the Liverpool Everyman Theatre, where his colleagues included Bill Nighy, Jonathan Pryce, Antony Sher, and Julie Walters. After routine early appearances in small parts for television programs such as The Professionals, Postlethwaite's first success came with the acclaimed British film Distant Voices, Still Lives in 1988. He then received an Academy Award nomination for his role in The Name of the Father in 1993. His performance as the mysterious lawyer Kobayashi in The Usual Suspects is well-known, and he appeared in many successful films including Alien 3, Brassed Off, The Shipping News, The Constant Gardener, Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet (as Friar Lawrence), and in Inception with Leonardo di Caprio.

    " Saw Pete in The Tempest at Manchester Royal Exchange Theatre. The greatest English actor at the greatest British theatre - lush. Oh and once had pizza with him in Chichester - He was at the next table but you know what I mean! "

    " Enjoying this book. He Played the Father in Distant voices very well which was an unusual part for him especially after Brassed off. What a pity he died so young at 64. Who knows what more he might have achieved "
