LOITERING WITH INTENT The Child, O'Toole, Peter
12 O'Toole, Peter LOITERING WITH INTENT The Child
London Pan Books 1993 0330331388 / 9780330331388 First Edition Softcover Good+ 
Moderate edge & corner wear, creasing to covers, edge rubbing. Internal pages are clean and tight other than some writing inside front cover. B/w photos. Review: "You should know going in to Peter O'Toole's "Loitering with Intent" that it is intended less as a full autobiography (it ends with his teenage years shortly after the end of WWII) and more as an impressionistic canvas of growing up in Europe during 20th century wartime. Bearing this in mind, you will find this both immensely enjoyable and hauntingly well-written.....It stops shortly after the war and we must all hope that he soon writes a follow-up volume. Had he not been an actor, Peter O'Toole could have made a splendid career as a writer. Thoroughly enjoyable!" (*Shipping will be reduced on this lighter book) ; 8vo
