Sir Peter Ustinov's beautifully crafted autobiography is told with exquisite wit and insight. From his birth in April 1921, it spans his extraordinary career as actor, playwright, film star, and director, confirming his early belief that he is 'irrevocably betrothed to laughter'. Ustinov's renowned gift for mimicry is exploited to the full in Dear Me. Eccentric relatives, school masters, sergeant majors, and manic Hollywood moguls are all brought unforgettably to life.

Listener Opinions

    " I wouldn't have picked to listen to this book. I am glad it was given to me...to make me listen...as I enjoyed it. It was interesting and in some places had me laughing out loud! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kay | 3/7/2013

    " Droll but self-indulgent memoir. Still, it definitely has its moments. And what a life! We should all lead such a full one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ron | 2/18/2013

    " Fascinating autobiography of one of my favorite actors. A genuine renaissance man and raconteur. If you enjoyed seeing him interviewed on shows like Dick Cavett etc., you'll love this book. Acting aside, if you're a fan of humorous fiction, check out his novel KRUMNAGEL. (If you can find a copy.) "

    " Not something I would usually go for but this was delightful. Beautifully written. "

    " I get the feeling that I wouldn't have gotten along with Peter Ustinov - he has, to say the least, a strong personality. That is, however, probably why this is such an interesting and entertaining book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karl Jackson | 10/12/2011

    " No idea how I came across this book. Turns out to be an absolute gem. The funniest autobiography I have read. Ustinov is very witty. This book makes fantastic light reading. "

    " the best biography i have read...the only substitute for hearing Ustinov telling the stories in interviews. The finest raconteur "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacqueline | 8/19/2011

    " Ok I suppose.I would rather listen to him than read about his life. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Louise Armstrong | 8/17/2011

    " I thought this was dull. Although he can write, he didn't actually tell you anything. Had dinner with Frank Sinatra. So??? What happened???? One or two funny anecdotes but no personal information about acting or his feelings. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 8/14/2011

    " As you can expect, this book is full of great stories and insights. It does get preachy, however, which is also a chance for insight. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeffrey | 5/30/2011

    " A gently humorous and self-deprecating autobiography of a very accomplished actor and author. "
