Format: Paperback
Yet another biog that has bee thrown together by a journalist keen on making a quick buck. Cobbled together from
out of date newspaper interviews, this inaccurate account isn't worth bothering with. Buy O'Grady's own story if you want a good read, At my Mothers Knee...and other low joints, very funny and gives a real insight to the man. You can hear his voice as you read. Simpsons is a load of badly written pap. Give this book a wide berth, you learn nothing from it.Paul O'Grady: The BiographyPaul O'Grady: The Biography

OMG! If like me you have been watching Paul O'Grady talking about his autobiography all year on his show - DON'T BUY THIS BOOK! It has been written by some journalist, it isn't his book and it's not even very good!!!! His REAL BOOK is called AT MY MOTHER'S KNEE and is brilliant! It's Paul o'Grady through and through. If you love Paul, you'll love it. Make sure you buy the right one!!!

I am a huge fan of Lilly Savage. The problem is not with Lilly or Paul O Grady. The problem is with the gushing sycophantic stile of the biographer. A more balanced style of writing more in the style of Paul would have much more appeal to me. A story that could be told better.

what a great book about a great man - Paul O Grady is a classic entertainer. His roots are in old fashonied variety shows and even vaudeville which is why his afternoon show is such a showcase for ordinary people with a bit of guts and talent. What this book does so well is to show why Paul supports ordinary people and underdogs. His history is amazing, you can almost sense him watching the women at market stalls and magistrates courts when he put Lily Savage together. But Lily was only a stepping stone - it is clear he always wanted to be himself and give other people a chance to shine. The emotional stuff in the book is heartbreaking without being intrusive. Paul has quietly got on with life when all has been falling down around him. Just like the survivors he has always admired. what a showman.

Paul O'Grady's biography made me laugh out loud and burst into tears with each chapter.
It's been a long time since i have read a book full of such hidden emotions.
You have to purchase this book whether you like Paul or not, if you aren't fond of him, then you soon will be after reading this book.
So impressed that i've just pre-ordered his next one, At my mother's knee.
Well done to Neil Simpson for the brilliantly writen book.
I couldn't put the book down!!
This book should have a health warning on the cover:
IF YOU ARE GOING TO PUCHASE THIS BOOK, YOUR HOUSEWORK WILL SUFFER!
The world will be populated with rats due to lack of housework!!

As an avid fan of the incredible Mr.O'Grady but not a keen reader of biographies, I purchased this with trepidation. Paul, his life, his humour, his varied adventures....all make for a great read. Learned things about this man I could never have imagined.He is number 1 on my 'imaginary' dinner party guest list.

Paul O'Grady comes over in this book as some kind of Saint . A man who turns everyone he meets into a friend. Friendly, kind, thoughtful,caring and hugely sympathetic. You believe it if you must. I have some reservations. In fact I have decided to stop reading biographies as they all seem to be written by sycophantic Ghost writers.

Thought I had bought an autobiography so it wasn't quite what I was expecting, hence wasn't as amusing as I thought it would be. Saying that it was very interesting and Paul comes across as a lovely person with a very interesting history.
