Review:

"Torrential psychological biography ... a savage but satiating account" ( Daily Mail)

"A fascinating, tragic and instructive story, vividly told" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"An absolute revelation, the book grips from the first page to the last and is packed with the kind of facts and anecdotes that make one drool. Brilliant" ( Film Review)

"It is a mad book - but then the subject is a madman. I love Lewis's passion ... I recommend it" ( Sunday Times)

"Reinventing the genre as well as reassessing its subject with formidable intelligence, this book is a remarkable achievement" ( Literary Review)

Book Description:

The authoritative biography of the great British actor, comedian and singer, star of BBC radio comedy series The Goon Show alongside comedian and poet Spike Milligan, and famous as Chief Inspector Clouseau in the classic Pink Panther series.
