Eric Morcambe Cricklewood not Hollywood,
By A Customer
This review is from: Eric Morecambe: Life's Not Hollywood It's Cricklewood (Paperback)
This book should be retitled "The growing pains of a whinging teenager". Who of us, as we grow to adulthood, has not had times when our fathers have been nuisances to us? We all have to deal with it and get over it, look back with wisdom (hopefully) and see our own faults too. Unfortunately the author (who thinks a famous father automatically makes the son famous) uses this book to go over the problems he had with Eric Morcambe (annoyingly referred to as EM throughout the text). The priveliged lifestyle of the son bemoaning his lot grinds down the reader. Since conflict with parents during teen years is not a new subject, this book has little to offer, except that the target is Eric Morcambe. Not one for Morecambe and Wise fans or anyone seeking insight into the man. Leave this one on the shelf!
