A Short Walk from Harrods


Forced into returning to London as a result of his supervisor and partner's quick deteriorating health and wellbeing, Bogarde has to re-adapt to lifestyles within the West London neighbourhoods that groomed him as an aspiring younger actor. yet along with his reputation fading and his personal existence descending into outdated age, the whole technique turns into particularly tricky to suffer. He stalks the streets like an 'apologetic turtle' and avoids society, saying together with his easy wit that he shall, from then on, purely do 'matinees' simply because he's too drained to head out within the evenings. even if this memoir reveals Bogarde at his so much weak he keeps the lucidity and style that makes his writing so stress-free. As ever, he expresses a deep sentimentality that guarantees no aspect is going left out or unfelt.

First released in 1993, this can be one in every of Dirk Bogarde's latter memoirs.
