The Elephant in the title derives from Elephant & Castle, the name of the poverty-plagued neighborhood in London where Michael Caine was born. Thus, the title serves advance notice that this will not be a conventional Hollywood memoir, larded heavily with celebrity stories and pompous self-puffery. Instead, The Elephant to Hollywood is a memoir penned by a sensitive, forthright actor who more than once has had to struggle with career crises. British critics got it right when they praised Caine's autobiography for "covering his whole life with David Nivenish charm" and noted that it was "written with just the right mix of warmth and candor." Now in paperback and NOOK Book.
