He also reveals the difficult relationship with his mother who always felt that Bob's brother was a better man than he was, and that Bob would never be a success in life, whether in show business or his family life. Of course, as an entertainer, he proved himself over and over again. His private life was a different matter. His first marriage ended because of unfaithfulness by both himself and his first wife; then there was the trauma of having a severely disabled son, Gary who died quite young. And then there was his obsessions with the accumulation of a vast library of films and video tapes, mounting up to 50,000 copies which were discovered in his garden shed at the time of his death. Many of these copies have proved to be priceless, copies of television shows long thought lost.
I really enjoyed reading this book, which is very revealing and very frank, particularly in dealing with his relationships with other celebrities of the time such as Diana Dors and Frankie Howerd. A marvelous read, and will be enjoyed by anyone wanting to know more about the real Bob Monkhouse and his contributions to television history.
Bob, I feel gives a true (as far as he can be) account of his life and loves. GREAT READ !!
