A good actor has many talents. His training includes dancing, singing, mime, and swordsmanship. Timothy West adds to these gifts the ability to capture a story on a page and to express that same story to an audience. His autobiography is also a history of the theater in Great Britain during his lifetime. He has played in every county and in every medium offered to the public; through his recounting of his experiences, we have an outline of the superior training that was offered to British actors. He shows his great sadness that with the closing of so many theaters, that venue is now little available. West polishes his narration with great humor and with choice anecdotes about people we all know and mishaps we hope we will never experience. J.P.
