From the Back Cover
Kenneth Williams was one of the great institutions of British entertainment. For nearly forty years his inimitable performances on stage, screen and radio delighted audiences around the world, and his autobiography recalls the most memorable moments from this time.
Barrack-room life in Singapore, post-war repertory, his roles in revue and on the London stage of the fifties and sixties, his famous cameos in great radio shows such as 'Hancock's Half Hour', 'Round the Horne' and 'Just a Minute', his friendships with people such as Ingrid Bergman, Maggie Smith, Orson Welles, Noel Coward, Joe Orton, Stanley Baxter and Gordon Jackson – all these are described with his special brand of humour and intelligence.
"Fascinating… amiable, intelligent, and full of good stories"
JOHN LAHR, 'TLS'
"Exceptionally well written… laughs to be had in plenty"
PAUL BAILEY, 'Observer'

A fascinating conundrum and I, for one, can't get enough of him. But there's little to be had - anywhere.
I would like to say it is an enjoyable read but, if you read between the lines, it is anything but. However, compelling it certainly is, and I've no problem recommending it to anyone who remembers him.
In his autobiography he leaves nothing to miss. He gives a perfect detailed account of his life on stage as well as off.
Full with wity tales about his life, Just Williams is all the more reliable as unlike most biographies Kenneth Williams had over forty years worth of diaries to reaccount the greatest moments in his life and thereby leaving you with a first hand impression on the man who appeared in more Carry-ons then aybody else.
