Paul O'Grady-At my mother's knee and other low joints,
This review is from: At My Mother's Knee...: and other low joints (Paperback)
I bought this book with the expectation that I would discover not only the background and history of Paul, but also an insight in to how he worked his way towards the amazing personality and consumate entertainer that he is today. From this perpective I was personally disappointed in that the story only took me so far on the journey that I was expecting.
I presume that a further autobiography is waiting in the wings that will bring me up to date with his fascinating life. I do hope so as, apart from my disappointment on the scope of the story in this book, there is no denying that the book is amazingly honest, humerous and inciteful. Maybe it is down to clever planning as once I had finished reading it I Was desperate to to be able to read on and discover just how he achieved so much from such potentially disadvantageous beginnings.
The book is well written, difficult to put down and hugely rewarding as far as it goes. He does need to write another one, though!!

I must admit to feeling quite annoyed at Mr. O Grady. I mean come on, a 3 book autobiography? Please! I feel the fans are being taken for a spin and that is unfair. As to the book, yes interesting for a while, but really could have been condensed into a quarter or less. I will not be buying the third installment.

I honestly believe the clue is in the title of the book!
