Product description

Review

'Eric Sykes, now 82, is a splendid survivor. Recently the subject of a charming South Bank Show, the indefatigable Lancastrian is still working, with blithe disregard for his deafness, blindness and heart bypass operation. Characteristically, Sykes ends this engagingly artless autobiography with the news that he has been cast as Frank Bryce in the latest Harry Potter film. The tone throughout is warm-hearted, though occasionally there are welcome blasts of asperity. And there are joyful pages devoted to what is surely Sykes's finest hour – his glorious riot of ad-libbery with Jimmy Edwards in “Big Bad Mouse”.' Hugh Massingberd, Daily Telegraph

'His prose is crisp and dry, with a poetic, vernacular lilt … Candid, erudite and most of all cheery. Warm and comforting.' The Times

'A charmed life … and one does not begrudge him an ounce of his success … Sykes's career is far from over.' Guardian

'A chatty, always amiable memoir. A far better testament to this game old trouper than the normal ghost-written guff.' Daily Express

'A wonderful slice of life, full of warmth and revealing the humanity and creative genius … Just grand.' Manchester Evening News

Word

'Britain’s deafest actor remains, in his eighties, amongst our deftest comic craftsmen.'
