Product description

Review

(a) brilliant little biography. -- The Stage, May 2002

(a) pungent, opinionated and brilliantly intuitive biography of the saddest act in the history of British cinema. -- New Statesman, September 2001

Lewis evokes Hawtrey’s weird by wholly joyful persona in a monograph worthy of Ken Tynan. -- Spectator, November 2001

Roger Lewis’s small but perfectly formed biography. . . like its subject, Lewis’s book may be slim but it packs a surprising amount between its covers. -- Evening Standard, November 2001

this brief book rewards reading. -- Observer, November 2001

Book Description

Charles Hawtrey 1914-1988: The Man Who Was Private Widdle, by Roger Lewis, is a small masterpiece of biographical investigation, shining a light on the comic genius of the Carry On films.
