First in this, paperback, edition. Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: In the 1990s, if you love film the place to be isnt Hollywood, but England.

Ewan McGregor captures the Zeitgeist of current youth culture, as the irresistibly likeable prime-mover amongst a new-wave of Brit-pack actors. McGregor successfully reflects the manifold dimensions which the British film industry now boasts: he is equally at home playing the icon for wasted youth in Trainspotting, or the art-house centre-piece in The Pillow Book.

This is an important and illuminating unauthorized study of Ewan MCGregors life and times, which traverses his phenomenal career. Choose Life basks in a golden era, taking in portraits of the main players in this charismatic young actors world. It is a celebration of British cinema, which addresses and analyses the issues of its development through MCGregors prolific output of classic films.

This is the testament to a life less ordinary.
