My Autobiography, Paperback

My Autobiography Paperback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series



Born into a theatrical family, Chaplin's father died of drink while his mother, unable to bear the poverty, suffered from bouts of insanity, Chaplin embarked on a film-making career which won him immeasurable success, as well as intense controversy.

His extraordinary autobiography was first published in 1964 and was written almost entirely without reference to documentation - simply as an astonishing feat of memory by a 75 year old man.

It is an incomparably vivid reconstruction of a poor London childhood, the music hall and then his prodigious life in the movies.
