Synopsis

Born Maurice Micklewhite, son of a Billingsgate fish porter and a charlady, Michael Caine's life has been an extraordinary rollercoaster: from washing dishes and fighting on National Service, to winning two Oscars and being knighted by the Queen. With more than 80 films to his name, he has starred in some of the classics of modern cinema: as an action anti-hero in "Get Carter", a Cockney lothario in "Alfie", and a disillusioned alcoholic academic in "Educating Rita". He is an enduring model of British cool. This authorized biography charts the amazing highs and lows in his turbulent ride to fame, fortune and respect.

About the author

William Hall has known Michael Caine since his earliest acting days, and since then he has been present on virtually all his films, developing a close relationship with him in the process. As a consequence this is an intimate authorised biography that paints a fascinating portrait of a driven man.
