Quotes & Awards

  • “Roger Moore is as debonair on the page as he is on screen.”

    Boston Globe

  • Setting a deliberate pace, Perkins deftly modulates his tone and creates a flawless performance. AudioFile
  • “As you would expect from an actor who’s never taken himself too seriously, One Lucky Bastard is charming and breezy, full of anecdotes, self-deprecating observations and salutes to many great actors who are no longer with us…I loved every minute of it.”

    New York Post

  • “It’s a breezy memoir filled with amusing anecdotes, including a delicious one about Joan Collins.”

    Daily News (New York)

  • “Moore’s…an amiable raconteur…[For] fans of the Bond franchise and British actors of the 1960s.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Well-known actor Roger Moore proves he’s a worthy raconteur in this follow-up to his previous memoir. With self-deprecation on full display, this former James Bond provides mostly salacious recollections, often thirdhand, of a lengthy show business career on both sides of the Pond. Derek Perkins’s droll and cheeky narration suits the content and the British vocal style one associates with Moore. Setting a deliberate pace, Perkins deftly modulates his tone and creates a flawless performance.”
