Manna from heaven for fans of Kenneth Williams.
on 27 January 2017
An expensively produced, diligently researched and lavishly illustrated book which anatomises the personal and professional life of a man who was, paradoxically and simultaneously, both an outrageous and entertaining exhibitionist and a self-repressed and introspective private individual. That's a combination that takes some beating, and it's documented here in detail by innumerable items from Wes Butters's private collection of Wlliams memorabilia, obtained directly from one of the comedy star's heirs.Russell Davies provides an authoritative linking narrative and there are illuminating extracts from extended interviews with people who knew and worked with Williams.
This book can be bought at the amazing bargain price of 1p.+ postage on Amazon. After reading through this ( and being sorry to reach the end! ) it's a fair bet you'll want to read Wes Butters's book, "Whatsisname", on the even more outrageous figure of Williams's colleague and "Carry On" co-star, Charles Hawtrey. That, however, on account of the much more modest single print run in 2010, will cost you nearly a tenner!
