Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1996

A scholarly study by an experienced biographer, this work chronicles the transformation of little Archie Leach, born to a poor family in Bristol, England, to Cary Grant, movie star and man of the world. The reader here can go either way--performing the story or reading the text. Tom Parker takes the studious route, presenting the material as a lecture rather than a story. His perfect elocution and impeccable phrasing leave no room for the whimsy and fun occasionally present in McCann's text. If the subject matter interests you, Parker's interpretation of it won't get in the way. But neither will it draw you into a work you're only passively involved with.
