Are You Sleeping by Kathleen Barber Read the opening extract of the brand new Kathleen Barber book before its publication on 27/12/2017

Who I am by Charlotte Rampling, Christophe Bataille
  

Lovereading view...

The autobiography of acclaimed actor, model and chanteuse Charlotte Rampling. Highly personal, packed with photographs from her personal archive, Rampling recounts her childhood and youth as the daughter of an army officer (who won a gold medal for the 4 x 400 relay in the infamous 1936 Berlin Olympics), and the memories and passions that would inspire her life and later work as an actress. Written in a style that gives a unique insight into her screen persona, it is an idiosyncratic and beguiling insight of one of the most consistently adventurous and interesting actors.

Synopsis

Who I am by Charlotte Rampling, Christophe Bataille

Oscar-nominated Charlotte Rampling most recently appeared in hit ITV drama Broadchurch, the BBC's London Spy and HBO's Dexter, and the feature film 45 Years. Her career has spanned popular entertainment and arthouse cinema, having starred in English, French and Italian films from 1966's Georgy Girl (opposite Lynn Redgrave), to films with French director Francois Ozon, including 2003's Swimming Pool. Having shied away from biographies and autobiographies ( too personal ) Rampling has now written Who I Am (first published in French) a lyrical, and intimate self-portrait via reminiscences.

Reviews

'A work of art - a moving look through the veil of one of acting's most timeless talents.''
