Product Details

About the Author

Reviews for Spike: An Intimate Memoir: 'Compelling! you cannot stop reading, so revealing is it of the tortured individual that lurked behind the public facade.' Sean O'Hagan, Observer 'Written with infectious verve! a cheery book.' Humphrey Carpenter, Sunday Times Reviews for Box 18: The Unpublished Spike Milligan: 'The volume does have a peculiar fascination, its tone set by the initial photograph of an elderly Milligan gripping the famous red This Is Your Life book in front of him as if it might afford some kind of defence. Much of the volume reproduces actual pages of handwriting, or handtyping. Naked script and unedited work generate a strange intimacy as one of Britain's most famously depressed and mercurial human beings bounces from mood to mood, some of them apocalyptic. It's hard not to love the ones who make us laugh. And it's hard to get enough of what we love.' A.L.Kennedy, Guardian 'This book gives us the feeling of looking over Spike's shoulder as he worked and is the nearest we are ever likely to get to the real Spike Milligan. It most certainly complements Norma's earlier "Spike: An Intimate Memoir." Most definitely a book for all lovers of Spike's work.' Mike Brown, Chairman of the Goon Show Preservation Society 'This is a book which any Spike Milligan fan pore over for hours.' The Oldie 'For lovers of vintage British comedy.' The Gloss Magazine
