    I must admit this is a book I ve been wanting to read for a long time In fact years I have long found Kenneth Williams to be somewhat a inspirational figure for me Often while watching his archive interviews I have seen clips of him speaking about this book Having discovered World of Books I was able to get my very own original copy A fantastic book crammed with acid retorts it makes for a fun read Definitely one for fans of KW

    An absolute howler Williams was one of Britain s most outrageous and brilliant comedians having been eagerly awaited in the old days of radio comedy and later TV for his trademark very camp remarks Like others of his contemporaries a deeply sad man but much bereaved when he died

    I m quite surprised by this one I was really looking forward to it especially after reading the reviews it was given at the time of release, but there s just something about it that doesn t sit well with me I love Kenneth Williams but for some reason, just couldn t finish this one.

    I was slightly disappointed as I was expecting lots of laughs from Kenneth Williams He comes over as snarky and a bit mean spirited Nevertheless it is interesting to discover the origins of some wellknown and often used comments.

    Biting and deliciously sequacious.
