Kaboom! Names don’t just drop in Frank Langella’s dishy memoir, they explode! Valentines and daggers fly at luminaries of the stage and screen who crossed his path over a 50-year acting career. There's even a politician or two. Darling, this book is fun!
A timid, henpecked man makes an impulsive decision, and his life will never be the same. As Harold walks the 600 miles to see an old friend one last time, he has the space and time to review his life – facing his regrets head-on, determined to make amends. Charming and illuminating, beautifully written and expertly paced, this book is hard to put down and even harder to forget.
From the elegant and witty British author of The Debt to Pleasure, an epic novel of our times as seen through the lens of the financial crisis in London. Pepys Road is populated by a cross-section of characters, from the rich banker and his shopaholic wife to the Senegalese soccer star to the Pakistani shopkeepers. Each of their intersecting lives provides a unique perspective on life in the globalized 21st century. A wonderful read!
