Richard’s journal includes stories, never before published, about the entire Astaire family. With graceful humor and sentiment he renders a unique portrait of Fred Astaire – on movie sets in Ireland and at home in California – that gives rare insight into the private man behind the dancing legend.
At the center of the memoir are the day-to-day experiences of an American family making a new life in the midst of a rural Irish community, involving a colorful gallery of Irish characters and visiting Hollywood stars.
