Summary

Andre de Toth’s remarkable, eccentric and utterly compelling memoir opens amidst the enchanted cafe society of pre-war Budapest. With a novelist’s sense of time and place he propels the reader through a series of snap-shots from his fantastically eventful life, from Vienna, Paris and London to Hollywood – where he encountered many of the legendary figures of cinema’s golden age.

Ever the maverick, de Toth avoids the anodyne cliches of the show biz biography. Brutally honest and frequently self-deprecating, Fragments is a memoir with bite.

Also included is an illuminating preface by Bertrand Tavernier.
