Trinity the Purple writes: Last November, I was fortunate enough to attend a signing by Christopher Lee in London. If you’ve met the man, you’ll know he is a Gentleman in every sense of the word. Not just a first class actor but a first class human being too.
Having read and thoroughly enjoyed his autobiography ‘Tall, dark and gruesome’ I asked if he was going to update it, it was published about ’95 and obviously it missed out on his renewed popularity with SW and LotR.
He replied that yes, he had just finished the updating and that it was with the publishers.
Move forward to this lunchtime. Was browsing my local bookshop and saw a poster about books being published next month. Was reading the list when I saw ‘Lord of Misrule – Christopher Lee’
‘Christopher Lee? The actor or the historian?’ thinks I. So I asked a very nice member of staff to check for me and she discovered that yes, it was the actor!
I cannot stress this enough – this is well worth your time and money to invest in. Christopher Lee is a fasinating gentleman, with a life that surpasses the most fantastic fiction. Christmas is coming, so after the TTT EE, put this on your Christmas list.
Just checked Amazon.com and I can’t find anything, so this might be British only so far.
