Hemmings is dead, but when I read this outrageous and very witty little book, I felt is if he were standing next to me, personally telling me his story -- his voice carries through that powerfully. Nothing here bores. His style reminds me of Christopher Hitchens (another womanizer) but he is always, always gentlemanly in discussing his wives, girlfriends and is matter of fact to owning up to bad behavior (hiding from his wife, half-naked in his assistant's closet) and wasted opportunities. At the end, he seems to have made peace with what was and what was not. Given that he died shortly before the book was published. that should be a comfort to his fans and a reminder for all of us to do a personal review.
The book is illustrated with some wonderful drawings he did, as well as family photos. If you are a Hemmings fan, you can't get better than this.
