A Must For Any Fan,
This review is from: Eric Morecambe Unseen: The Lost Diaries, Jokes and Photographs (Hardcover)
Much of the biographical information contained in this book has already been covered (and, indeed, is sourced from) previous biographies. There are some new interviews with Joan and Gary Morecambe (among others) but as someone who has read many books on the subject of Eric and Ernie, I am happy to say I was never bored by any part this book. I found it a compelling read, and in particular the previously unpublished photographs, notes and diary entries by Eric himself were fascinating. This gives a wonderful insight into the private side of a much-loved comedian, and I was frequently laughing out loud when reading it, and moved to tears by the section covering his final heart attack. A shame about the missing four pages - I just wonder what the photographs were!
