Charles 'Bud' Tingwell is one of Australia's best-loved actors. His career has spanned over fifty years, from glamorous post-war Hollywood, to London in the swinging sixties, to some of Australia's favourite film and stage productions. Yet there is much more to Bud than his long list of acting credits.
Before becoming an actor, he served in Europe and North Africa in World War II as a fighter pilot with the RAAF. He has worked in film, theatre and television as a distinguished director, producer and writer. And above all, he is Bud, the family man, a loving husband and father, while working in an industry notorious for broken marriages and shattered homes.
He writes frankly of coping with the death of his beloved wife, Audrey, and how he was to find comfort in his work. This is Bud's story as wise, funny, captivating and endearing as the man himself. (back cover)
