4.0 out of 5 stars The best mate I never had, 15 May 2007
This review is from: That's Me in the Corner: Adventures of an Ordinary Boy in a Celebrity World (Paperback)
This is the latest (third) part of the author's autobiography. Having enjoyed all three, I feel as if I know Mr Collins all my life. It is only in this latest instalment that he moves from the ordinary to a variety of jobs at NME, the BBC, Radio 1, Empire magazine and Radio Times, but we feel pleased for him because we feel we know him and deep down is an ordinary fan boy like the rest of us.

The focus here is work related, very little about relationships, marriage, family etc and it would have been nice to have a flavour.

He writes with ease and with a wry look at himself and the people around him and never takes himself seriously. It's astonishing that someone can have produced a three-part biography at the age of forty without being overly famous!

If I met him in a pub, I'd buy him a pint because I feel I've known him all his life and that is the essence of his books, you feel you have grown up with him.
