Publisher's Summary

Urbane. Brilliant. Brave. Funny. Famous. Handsome. Nigel Havers is the real-life charmer you might expect. In a career that has taken him from a schoolboy production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" to the red carpet on Oscar Night with "Chariots of Fire", via starring roles in the West End stage, classic television series like "Don't Wait Up", and a cameo in "Little Britain", the Hollywood blockbusters that made him a household name are only the beginning.
With characteristic modesty and a captivating eye for the absurd, he treats us to the highlights and lowlights of a life like no other - a life in which chilling reality (watching his father Michael, later the attorney general, begin his prosecution of the Yorkshire Ripper) and beguiling fantasy (sleeping with Elizabeth Taylor) has continuously and arrestingly collided.

Critic Reviews

"This is a devil-may-care, extremely endearing book with not a luvvie line in it. Absolute bollocks. Total fun." ( Sunday Times)
"Havers could charm the knickers off a nun. Wonderfully aristocratic-looking, a great raconteur...he comes across as the sort of man you would kill to have dinner with." ( Daily Mail)
" Playing with Fire is...highly amusing...self-deprecating, surprisingly well-written, and it zips along at a rate of knots." ( Scotsman magazine)
