Rereading The Rats by James Herbert. Enormous chomping fun.

"Happiness and Tear" - The Ken Dodd Story

I meant to post the front cover, as I think it is a wonderful photograph of Ken - the years of experience etched in every line. A man at peace with himself.

I was reading Robert Ross's Marty Feldman biography and it's excellent. I've left it early to concentrate on Tim Waterstone's book on his business journey as it's a library book and I'd forgotten about it!?

Overpaid, Oversexed, and Over There by David Hepworth. The story of the British bands invading the USA in the sixties. Fantastic!

Hunter Davies, The Beatles. I'm a tad disappointed. He goes into a lot of detail about the early years, but After 1963 it's maddeningly superficial. Whole key albums aren't even mentioned, and as for the tours, he actually says 'Look it up in the papers if you're mad enough.' Sorry, isn't that his job? Philip Norman's Shout Is more edifying.
