Byrne is internationally known for his acting in numerous films, such as Into the West and Miller's Crossing, and for being the producer of the Oscar-nominated In the Name of the Father. Now he will be known as a writer of memoirs as well. His book begins as the story of his boyhood in 1950s Dublin, with vivid descriptions of his home, the pubs, and the streets, as well as of his stint as a novice at a seminary in Wales. He also writes of his first love, his beginnings as an actor in Dublin's vibrant theater scene, and the birth of his two children. In each chapter, Byrne's voice comes across like the voiceover in a film. His descriptions of Hollywood, of a big-budget production in Eastern Europe, and of his return to Ireland for a break are particularly engaging. Byrne has many stories to tell, and his readers will hope for more in the near future. This absorbing autobiography is recommended for both public and academic libraries. Lisa N. Johnston, Sweet Briar Coll. Lib., VA
