5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Autobiography!, 23 July 2013
This review is from: Ricky (Paperback)
Ricky Tomlinson' fans will really enjoy this warm, witty and brutally honest account of his life and career.

Ricky's personal life would make an excellent gritty British movie, jailed on conspiracy charges after the 1971 national building strike, blacklisted by the building industry following his release, unable to find work only to become a popular stand up comedian and go onto have a fantastic career in movies like 'Raining Stones' and 'Riff Raff', directed by Ken Loach, and starring in television series like 'Clocking Off', 'Cracker', and most famously: 'Brookside' and 'The Royal Family'.

Ricky is a talented writer and it was great to find out more about the man behind the many roles. With celebrity anecdotes galore, hilarious stories, priceless and forthright opinions about Margaret Thatcher and fellow scouser Cilla Black. Unlike the latter, Ricky has never forgotten his Liverpool routes and comes across as a genuine, kind and thoughtful man.

'Ricky' is an honest, inspirational and highly entertaining book. It gave me a great insight into the world of Ricky Tomlinson, and I like him even more now after reading it.
