Dirk Bogarde: The Writer

I was going to do a Halloween post for Dirk, but when I was thinking it over, it wasn't really panning out, quite the way I envisioned. So I then though, why not show my readers, another side of Dirk, you might be unfamiliar with- he was a writer. Dirk wrote a total of 17 books, in his lifetime, including autobiographies and novels. He also wrote a few poems as well. Just with his acting, Dirk wrote with such sophistication and wit, it's hard not to be sucked in. When I went looking for his books, I found that a good portion of his books are available to buy on www.amazon.com and if you are interested about his other work, go tohttp://www.dirkbogarde.co.uk/index.php on info about his career, life, and hobbies. That website is filled with so much amazing things about Dirk! So if you are looking for a book to read, check out some of these titles. You never know, you may really enjoy them!

I must confess I've never read any of Sir Dirk's books, although I've always wanted to. Those who have done so seem to recommend them highly! BTW, you can still do a Halloween post for Dirk. A review of The Mind Benders would do it. The movie is so frightening it would qualify as psychological horror!
