From the moment i started reading sue's book i was hooked and wanted to know more about the life and times of this facinating outrageous person.Sue one of his oldest friends tells of his extraordinary life as if you were chatting to an old friend as it is so down to earth, she avoids making any judgements about his outrageous behavior you end up just wanting to know more.
I like countless others I first discovered Leigh while watching a late night documentary about him, and couldn't wait to discover more about him.
I could never find this book in any of my local book stores so it's great that there's a kindle edition! X
