Reviews

This is a brilliant and beguiling account of Reed s life and times - Mail on SundayThere is a great feeling of loss and tragedy at the core of Sellers s biography. He is unflinching in the depiction of how awful Reed could be, but balances that with a strong sense of the love and affection he inspired in those around him. If nothing else, this highly readable book is a permanent reminder of just how exhausting it must have been to be Oliver Reed. - Glasgow Sunday HeraldFor the first time, Reed s close family has collaborated on a project about Reed himself, revealing a complex man behind the fa ade, a person of great passions and loyalties underscored by deep-rooted vulnerabilities and insecurities. With never-heard-before anecdotes and new interviews with family, friends and peers, What Fresh Lunacy Is This? is a revealing examination of his mould-breaking personality - Sight and SoundLike Reed himself, the book might not be subtle but in places it s hilariously funny and, by the end, oddly moving as well - The ObserverIn this adulatory but always entertaining book, Sellers shows that Ollie was a more interesting figure than the cartoon drunk of the tabloids - Sunday TimesWhat Fresh Lunacy Is This? is a nice, racy romp with Reed the rum-sodden rogue - Financial Times
