Legendary actor, Terence Stamp, pens new memoir detailing his love of acting and mysticism
The Ocean Fell into the Drop is a different kind of show business memoir. Within, Terence Stamp chronicles his twin passions, acting and mysticism, explores their interplay, and explains how both have had immeasurable impact on his career and himself. Stamp includes reflections on his directors: Fellini, Loach, Pasolini; actors: Olivier, Brando and Redgrave; and spiritual masters: Krishnamurti, Osho, and Hazarat Inayat Khan.
