by | Read by Christopher Kay

Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1984

With his British accent, Christopher Kay is a natural to read Fred Astaire's biography. Author Carrick portrays Astaire, who died in 1987, as a study in contrasts. He was easy-going as a family man while a perfectionist in his art. He enjoyed a relatively simple lifestyle for a Hollywood celebrity but was always the formal cosmopolitan. Kay conveys Astaire's formality and his bonds to British aristocracy affably as dance music punctuates this winsome biography. D.W.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 95]
