Anyone familiar with Izzard's live act will find comfort in the customary style of the nine monologues, which comprise this volume. His organic meanderings take you on a surreal and fascinating journey of word-association, circuiting the comedian's family background, unique career trajectory and creative inspirations. Interspersed throughout are scenic asides from the world of entertainment and history. Izzard's refusal to be confined by convention could run the risk of descending into diatribe, but his curious logic keeps the flavour effervescent. The brilliance lies in his ability to weave a wandering narrative around a series of seemingly unrelated anecdotes, often ending up right back where he started, but his unique ability to be simultaneously random and relevant means that the reader never feels that his unpredictable shifts of focus are overly contrived. Ok, you may not care that you don't know about the ice-cream kiosk near where Spike Milligan was stationed during the war, and you may not have given a great deal of thought to the blue-print behind mammalian hair patterning, but invest a little time in the Izzard method of explication and you will be entertained and enlightened.
