About this book
Published to coincide with the 10th anniversary of his death, this is the autobiography of sorts that Milligan never wrote. It's a collection that ranges across all his works and writings, a celebration of his unique talent and his hilarious reflections on his life and life in general, and contains previously unpublished letters and poems. It has been put together by his agent, manager, mother confessor and long-time friend, Norma Farnes.
With his lightning-quick wit, unbridled creativity and his ear for the absurd, Milligan revolutionised British comedy. Throughout his life, Milligan also wrote prolifically - scripts, poetry, fiction, as well as several volumes of memoir, in which he took an entirely idiosyncratic approach to the truth.
