£15.00

Product description

As Luck Would Have It by Derek Jacobi 

Star of stage, screen and television, and one of only two people to be awarded two Knighthoods, Sir Derek Jacobi is one of Britain's most distinguished actors. 'If you want to be an actor, don't. If you need to be an actor, do.' The world of theatre could not have been further from Derek's childhood: an only child, born in Leytonstone, London. With his father a department store manager and his mother a secretary, his was very much a working class background. But nonetheless Derek always knew he was going to be an actor, and he remembers clearly the first time he was in costume - draping himself in his mother's glorious wedding veil as he paraded up and down the Essex Road with his friends.

This copy is a rare first edition with a full number line. It contains the author's signature in a dedication on a bookplate on the first title page. The pages and edge are only slightly faded but clean and unmarked. There are few slight scuffs to the dust jacket which is not clipped.
