Michael Whitehall was a leading theatrical agent and producer whose clients included Nigel Havers, Daniel Day-Lewis, Edward Fox, Michael Fassbender and Colin Firth. He appeared with his son Jack Whitehall on BBC 2's Backchat and more recently with Jack on Travels With My Father for Netflix. His books include Shark Infested Waters and Him & Me with Jack.
Backing into the Spotlight is a hilarious and an unashamedly
non-PC memoir . . . Now in his eighth decade, Whitehall is a fine
raconteur, gloriously unreconstructed and still deeply suspicious
of modernity * Daily Mail *
Hugely entertaining -- Neil Armstrong * Mail on Sunday *
This excellent memoir stands on its own merits, full of great stories told with Michael's dry wit * Choice *
