David Niven is remembered as one of Britain’s best-loved actors. The archetypal English gentleman, he starred in over ninety films. He is equally remembered as the author of this classic autobiography.



In his first volume, he remembers his childhood and school days, his time at Sandhurst and his early army service. He recalls America during the prohibition era and days in Hollywood before the Second World War. Of the war itself, he tells of family life back in Britain and his time on the front line in France and Germany.



THE MOON’S A BALLOON is a wonderful record of a truly remarkable and warm-hearted man, told in his inimitable style.
