Of Russian, French and Ethiopian origin, Peter Ustinov was born in London and was educated at Westminster School. It was difficult for a boy in the 1930s to be called von Ustinov, have a father and an uncle who had flown in the German Air Force, and, to be plunged into an English public school. In his memoirs he tells us about his extraordinary background and antecedents, his remarkable parents, his early experience in the theatre, his rather un-martial years as a private in the British army and his post-war success as playwright and stage and screen actor. There are many excellent stories, some hilarious and others which are moving or very revealing of both the people he is writing about and about himself. Not unexpectedly "Dear Me" (the author frequently addresses himself throughout the book in this manner to point out his own failings, inconsistencies, or omissions) is as unique as is Peter Ustinov himself.
