Not a great biography, by any means.,
This review is from: The Life and Death of Peter Sellers (Hardcover)
I have read this book twice now and whereas I bow to the length of the work(800 plus pages) I have come to the conclusion it is little more than character assassination.
It seems Peter Sellers was forever wrong and Roger Lewis is always correct.
Graham Stark, who, in his much more enjoyable biography of PS states in the his book that he was interviewed for a biography and was sorry he did so. I can guess, that it may well be Roger Lewis's biography.
If you are into a warts and all biography and want to overlook Peter Sellers' talent of making people laugh, then by all means go for it.
I bought this biography because I am a fan of the late, great Peter Sellers, who, despite Roger Lewis almost endlessly pouring scorn, just want to say I am a fan because in every film Sellers made He me laugh..Made me Happy..Made me smile.
Roger Lewis, it seems, could never do that.
