Product description

Review

"As a narrator, stroppy of tongue but melting of heart, O'Grady still charms and tickles. The comic scenes with his truly mythological mum ("the Madame Defarge of Tranmere"; "Columbo in a flannelette nightie"; "Eleanor of Aquitaine with a chip-pan") can touch the hem of Alan Bennett's robe... Leaves most fiction and history of the era in the dust." (Boyd Tonkin Independent)

"Paul O'Grady's life has already filled two excellent volumes... Still Standing is another enjoyable and colourful read." (Roland White The Sunday Times)

"Honest, funny and supremely readable." (Sunday Express)

"I absolutely loved it." (Alan Carr)

"O'Grady has a playwright's ear for dialogue, and his salty descriptions of raucous gigs in rundown pubs are a rude delight." (Independent)

Book Description

The third installment of rollicking adventures from Britain's best loved entertainer

I really enjoyed the book. Paul keeps you engaged and turning the page.

I have to agree with Kevin though. The book ends just as he is about to hit the big time and I would have liked to hear about some of the showbiz parts of his life and more about his relationship with Murphy. He says that there won't be another book. Then again, he said he wouldn't do Lily again and he would never return to ITV.

I would still recommend buying the book! Not only is the book touching but very funny too.

Be prepared to be transported back in time & see the scenes unfold. You will be enthralled, you will cry, but throughout it all you will laugh a great deal. Paul O'Grady holds no punches, but he tells his story in such a way that you are with him through each moment. He has a knack for story telling in a way that you believe he's sitting down sharing a cuppa & telling you all about it. You will think of him as an old friend. He has a charm. A caring soul. Loved it.

The way Paul O'Grady writes, it's, well, it's just like he's speaking to me. Telling me his story. It is such an easy read. I've read all of Pauls' books, and this one didn't dissapoint! Straight talking, humour, highs and lows, this book has it all. I'm going to read it again in case I missed anything. Buy it!
