9780297864936: A Spectacle of Dust: The Autobiography

The candid memoirs of a great character actor Steven Spielberg called him "the best actor in the world," about which Postlethwaite said: "I'm sure what Spielberg actually said was, 'the thing about Pete is that he thinks he's the best actor in the world.'" This is the story of a diverse and multi-talented actor's eventful life, told in his own vibrant words as he was at the end of it.

About the Author:

Pete Postlethwaite (1945–2011) was a stage and film actor whose films include Aliens 3The Constant Gardener, Inception, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, The Town, The Usual Suspects, and In the Name of the Father, for which was nominated for an Academy Award.

Review:

"An extrovert, tender, charming and unselfconscious book, with some extraordinary, hell-raising and hair-raising anecdotes. Reading it revived the sadness I had on hearing about his death, particularly the last, remarkable chapter about his final illness."  —Guardian
