Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
"[I]t is difficult to imagine anyone nicer and more modest--more authentic--than Sir Alec Guinness, a honeybunch who is not, however, a pussycat. It is fair to assume that one cannot labor in the theater for the better part of a lifetime without gnashing one's teeth once in a while, and a refreshing hint of acerbity finds its way into the celebratory pages of A POSITIVELY FINAL APPEARANCE. He is a repository of theatrical knowledge and a vessel of gratitude, which would count for very much less had he not such a serendipitous writing style (sly, witty, elegant), the better for calling no attention to its quiet self."
Barbara Grizzuti Harrison, New York Times Book Review, 10/31/1999Review:
"Guinness is at his best telling backstage/inside stories. He's less attractive as a grumpy old man. He gives us a taste of both here. He gets points for being literate and literary, qualities not associated with most actors....[but h]is best anecdotes are the catty ones."
Bruce McCabe, Boston Globe, 01/31/2000
