Blessings in Disguise

Blessings in Disguise - Alec Guinness I liked the structure of this - either a person (Sybil Thorndike, Edith Evans) or a theme/period in Guinness' life (his service in the Navy, for instance) gets a chapter. It does, of course, allow him entirely to omit whole parts of his career (most of his film work, for instance, which he seems for the most part to have undertaken for the money. Star Wars is mentioned exactly once, in that context).

Engagingly written, and another voice in that highly interesting chorus of voices from the Gielgud/Olivier era. On to the permanent shelf it goes.
