My Name Escapes Me, the diaries of Sir Alec Guinness, became an international bestseller when published in 1996. This new volume contains Sir Alec's journal since the summer of that year. He reports on the matters - large and small, local, national and cultural - that occupy him between 1996 and 1998, with varying measures of acerbity and affection. Musing fascinatingly on books, films and theatre, Sir Alec delivers a journal that is at once endearingly personal, and a public and engaging snapshot of his times. This is a worthy successor to the highly acclaimed volume of diaries.
