Synopsis

In this enchanting memoir, Terence Stamp takes readers with him on his unlikely journey from pre-war London’s East End, where his birth heralded the unification of two Cockney clans, to the beginnings of the stardom that would transform his life.

A born storyteller, Terence looks back on his life with humor and affection for everyone from his beloved mother—whose unswerving conviction that he was special instilled in Terence a belief that his life would be different—to the teacher who informed him that he “would make a good manager at Woolworth’s.”
 
That was not to be. After winning a scholarship to the Webber Douglas Academy, Terence teamed up with another struggling actor, fellow Londoner Michael Caine. The two shared a mews house, running their lines together and sharing one suit for auditions. But the lean times were about to end.
