Remember that time Lawrence Olivier sharted in his tunic between Acts II and III of the Royal Shakespeare Company's 1968 performance of "Julius Caesar"? Christopher Plummer does. He remembers all kinds of yarns, which he has collected in a jolly good heave-ho of sentences he has titled, In Spite of Myself, and from which he shall be reading choice excerpts tonight inside the hallowed halls of the Coral Gables Congregational Church.
Afterward, he shall don his most flowing of pens to put his Samuel de Champlain upon your newly-purchased copy, costing just 38.62 Canadian dollars, or $29.95 for you borish Americans. Do join him, or he shall summon his most guttural and Biblical of voices to smite you with a plague of locusts issuing from thy shower head.
