These are the memoirs of actor and lecturer Peter Davidson, whose career spanned several decades and many fascinating events. Peter was born in Cheshire during World War 2, just a couple of miles from the Liverpool docks, at a time when the Luftwaffe were constantly overhead. He was evacuated to Derbyshire and Lincolnshire, where he spent many happy years growing up with friends, family and Chantry, a splendid Labrador retriever. After spells at a Skegness boarding school a degree from Glasgow University and a post-graduate degree from the Courtland Institute of Art with Anthony Blunt, Peter was appointed as the Head of Art History and Complementary Studies at West Sussex College of Art, followed by lecturing for London and the Open University as well as a variety of prestigious art schools. Throughout this time, however, Peter also worked as an actor, working on films with Roman Polanski, Hitchcock, Glenda Jackson, Spike Milligan, and sharing a car to Pinewood studios with Anthony Hopkins. He later founded his own company - Magic Carpet Productions, producing over fifty titles of spoken English cassettes and videos. An Invitation to Contemporary Art has been sold at Tate Modern consistently for 20 years. A man of many parts, Mr ByTheWay is Peter's autobiography - a potpourri of careers and odd jobs that have made the man, along with a selection of enticing photographs. Throughout, Peter's abiding passion for writing shines through, making this a fascinating and amusing entertainment for readers who enjoy a interesting memoir.
