  2. Mikey James Mikey James says:

    This was an interesting read but not as good as his diaries, in my opinion Some of the letters we funny, scathing, sad and sometimes gave you a sense of sympathy towards Kenneth I d only really recommend this to a real fan of his as it could be hard work sometimes.

  3. Lesley Thompson Lesley Thompson says:

    I am bit biased but I loved this book He is so cleaver with his use of the English language and the way he uses them to scorn or praise Loved it.

  4. Elwycke Elwycke says:

    What a brilliant, witty, infuriating, intelligent man he was.I ve read The Diaries several times and find them endlessly fascinating, so i turned to The Letters with great interest Here i found some captivating missives and some serious, intellectual ones demonstrating a man who delighted in a complex, abstract concept and poetry as much as a saucy joke.In fact I think I ve discoveredpoetry through reading Mr Williams than anywhere else.I recommend this book, especially if you re a fan What a brilliant, witty, infuriating, intelligent man he was.I ve read The Diaries several times and find them endlessly fascinating, so i turned to The Letters with great interest Here i found some captivating missives and some serious, intellectual ones demonstrating a man who delighted in a complex, abstract concept and poetry as much as a saucy joke.In fact I think I ve discoveredpoetry through reading Mr Williams than anywhere else.I recommend this book, especially if you re a fan If you re not and only know of him as the one with the funny voice from the Carry On films, then DEFINITELY read this

  5. Lynda Kelly Lynda Kelly says:

    My version is actually a bloody great hardback and called the diaries not the letters I got this pretty much as soon as it was released and it told a lot of his secrets I loved at his comments on other celebrities he could be very cutting indeed

  6. Richard Thomas Richard Thomas says:

    Well worth having, these show Kenneth Williams in a different light to his diaries Erudite and pleasant in turn and rarely showing his camp stage persona.

  7. Ipswichblade Ipswichblade says:

    It was ok but I felt it was stretching the diaries which were excellent The problem with letters is you only see one side of the correspondence
