Reviews

It is an extrovert, tender, charming and unselfconscious book, with some extraordinary, hell-raising and hair-raising anecdotes. - Peter Bradshaw, GuardianThe closing chapter is deeply wrenching, with Postlethwaite distributing the last of his love, time and energy among family and friends who surround him. - Ryan Gilbey, Evening Standard
