MY LIFE SO FAR (originally published as SON OF ADAM) is the story of the life of a small boy from his earliest childhood to the age of fourteen, at his family home in Dumfriesshire. The boy was Sir Denis Forman, the former chairman of Granada Television and of the Royal Opera Board; the house was Craigielands, a beautiful Palladian mansion set in wooded parkland beside a lake and teeming with a rich variety of characters whom Denis Forman brings vividly to life. These memoirs also describe the germination of his two main interests: entertaining an audience, and music. The first was to lead him - after service in World War Two - into films and television, culminating in CORONATION STREET and THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN. The second gave rise to his involvement with the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
