Description - A Moment Towards the End of The Play by Timothy West

A revised and expanded edition of the autobiography that has delighted readers and theatregoers since its first publication in 2001.

Known - and loved - for his many TV appearances in Brass and as the embodiment of Edward VII, Thomas Beecham and Winston Churchill, Timothy West has led a charmed life as an actor, moving effortlessly between TV and stage, film and radio recordings. With his wife, Prunella Scales, and his son, Samuel, he and his family have been responsible for much of the best that stage and screen have had to offer in recent years.

'A theatrical memoir that doesn't cloy, and is filled with insight, wit and a sense of the ultimate absurdity of life' Judith Flanders, TLS

'Wise, extremely funny and replete with beguiling stories... a book which contains enough humanity and insight to guarantee its success' Richard Edmonds, Birmingham Post

'Delightfully entertaining' Humphrey Carpenter, Sunday Times

'A first rate writer' Michael Arditti, Daily Mail
