Charles 'Bud' Tingwell is one of Australia's most popular and respected actors. Read by Bud himself, this is a moving account of a life well lived.Tingwell's career has spanned over 50 years, from glamorous post-war Hollywood, to London in the swinging 60s, to some of Australia's favourite film and stage productions. That a man can star in two films as widely separated by time and distance as The Desert Rats (1953) and The Castle (1997) is surely a sign of extraordinary longevity and talent.Yet there is much, much more to Bud than his long list of acting credits. Before he ever established himself as an actor, he served in Europe and North Africa in World War II as a fighter pilot with the RAAF. But above all he is Bud the family man, a loving husband and father. He writes frankly of coping with the death of his beloved wife, Audrey, and of how he was to find comfort in his work. This is Bud's story - as wise, funny, captivating and endearing as the man himself.More
"A tender, quiet challenge to the salacious big-noting typical of the showbiz memoir....impossible to resist; one succumbs willingly to its modesty and candour." (Sydney Morning Herald)
