Happy Birthday Sir Michael Caine!

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

Today, revered actor Sir Michael Caine celebrates his 80th birthday, and, considering he’s something of a national treasure, it’s a milestone that is getting some deserved attention.

A new exhibition launches today at the Museum of London featuring never-before-exhibited photographs of the iconic actor, as well as footage from his cult classics films like Alfie, Educating Rita, Get Carter and The Italian Job. And here is an interview with the birthday boy as he reflects on his life and career.

As the proud publishers of two novels that inspired some of his films: Alfie, by Bill Naughton (A&B’s 2001 cover pictured below) and Get Carter, by Ted Lewis, we’d like to pay tribute to Sir Michael Caine too.  So to celebrate his 80th we’re giving away 8 sets of both books (that’s 8, not 80, I’m afraid). Enter the giveaway here!

    Mad Girl by Bryony Gordon

    Ailsa: I challenged myself to read more non-fiction this year. Bryony writes about her lifelong struggle with OCD, and I'm finding the book really interesting.
