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.

A great wit
A natural story teller Peter Ustinov does a spendid job recounting an interesting life. For me it was as though he was reading it with a detached persona, but it only served to make it funnier. I enjoyed this but felt somewhat cheated at the end, as I felt there could have been alot more of the story told - and for that reason i have given it four stars. very enjoyable but just missing the mark slightly.
Can't take it out of my ears
Wonderfull and thought provoking one you can just keep listening to
Dear Me - Peter Ustinov
I am not sure this is "read by the author" himself Peter Ustinov. Doesn't sound like it to me and therefore is disappointing .....
