Descripción del producto
An immensely enjoyable, witty and racy memoir. (Sunday Times)
Forthright, bawdy, and often hilarious, zany and zestful, his anecdotes should keep you entertained for hours. (Sunday Express)
Niven's life was Wodehouse with tears. (John Mortimer)
Reseña del editor
One of the bestselling memoirs of all time, David Niven's The Moon's a Balloon is an account of one of the most remarkable lives Hollywood has ever seen.
Beginning with the tragic early loss of his aristocratic father, then regaling us with tales of school, army and wartime hi-jinx, Niven shows how, even as an unknown young man, he knew how to live the good life.
But it is his astonishing stories of life in Hollywood and his accounts of working and partying with the legends of the silver screen - Lawrence Oliver, Vivien Leigh, Cary Grant, Elizabeth Taylor, James Stewart, Lauren Bacall, Marlene Dietrich, Noel Coward and dozens of others, while making some of the most acclaimed films of the last century - which turn David Niven's memoir into an outright masterpiece.
An intimate, gossipy, heartfelt 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..Ver Descripción del producto

Niven died in 1983, the victim of motor neurone disease, known in the United States as Lou Gehrig's. But he was evoked very fondly by his pals Roger Moore and Robert Wagner in their 2008 autobiographies, so I decided to give his own 1971 memoir another read. Alas, it is true what they say about not being able to go home again. This time his narrative seemed dated--his movies and famous friends seemed to come from long ago and far away. There were more references to his indulgence in booze and women than I recalled, and much information was missing. Since my first reading, I learned that Niven's marriage to the alcoholic Hjordis had turned miserable and that he suffered greatly at the end of his life from both her mistreatment of him and his illness. Wanting to know more about this wonderful man, who died with nary a detractor to his name, I sought his complete story and I found this one to be merely an appetizer a dozen years short of the whole. But as such, it sets the stage for further reading . . . and surfing the Net. (I had forgotten that Niven was famously "streaked" at the 1974 Oscars while introducing Elizabeth Taylor, for example.) Research this man any way you can, but don't miss out on the enchantment of his character and a life well lived.
