Product description

Review

'Compelling… you cannot stop reading, so revealing is it of the tortured individual that lurked behind the public facade.'
Sean O'Hagan, Observer

'Written with infectious verve… a cheery book.'
Humphrey Carpenter, Sunday Times

Synopsis

In this affectionate yet true account, Norma Farnes looks at the whole of Spike's life from his childhood and extraordinary family in India, his ongoing battle with his restless mind, his numerous affairs and his heartening struggles with many varied causes. She gives a mass of wonderful anecdotes and revealing insights into Spike and his circle, including, of course, his often fraught but deep friendship with Peter Sellers. In Spike, Norma Farnes has written a moving portrait of her greatest friend. Above all, Spike's fascinating, very human character is brought to life on every page.
