Peopled with a wonderful collection of warm, wicked and weird characters, Vic Reeves' memoir is an enchanting, surreal and utterly hilarious comic gem. COMIC MASTERPIECE FROM ONE OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN BRITISH HUMOUR. Vic, or Jim as he was known, grew up just like any other boy -- terrified of his father's immense moustaches, obsessed with owning his own crow and a master at writing his own name. Early brushes with evil prams, exploding model aeroplanes and consumption are soon swept away as Vic careers towards adulthood in this brilliant memoir of whimsical reminiscences and flighty invention.

As well as having a number one record, he has appeared on I'm a Celebrity ... ,presented a wildlife documentary and is currently a DJ on Virgin Radio.Review:
"Unusual among celebrity memoirs is that Reeves describes a childhood that was all but perfect" * Guardian * "One of the great pleasures of this book is his description of life in the hairy Seventies; of discovering David Bowie, Grand Funk Railroad, prog rock and Yes." * Observer * "This is both a touching and fascinating memoir... a great read told in the comedian's wickedly witty humour" * Hot Stars * "Unlike the current glut of misery memoirs, his book... is a funny, positive read." * Northern Echo * "Well done, have a gold star" -- Bob Mortimer
