9780749929473: Loving Peter: My life with Peter Cook and Dudley Moore

Judy Huxtable, a beautiful Swinging Sixties model and actress, met and fell in love with Peter Cook in 1967. They were together during the memorable hit shows 'Behind the Fridge' and 'Derek and Clive', divorcing in 1989. Being intimate with Peter meant that Judy was inevitably close to Peter's comic partner, Dudley Moore, and they all formed an extraordinary bond. She was in a unique position to observe the special relationship that Peter and Dud shared, and the rivalry that existed between them.

In LOVING PETER, Judy gives a perceptive and poignant account of the Peter Cook that only she knew. She writes with a mix of humour, insight and sadness about one of the funniest, most enigmatic and troubled men on the planet. She describes what he was like as a husband, performer, friend, father and man and gives an inside view of what really made him tick; why he seemed to want to destroy those he loved the most; how he succumbed to the destructive forces of drink and drugs; and how he and Dudley really got on.

About the Author:

Judy Huxtable met Peter Cook in 1967. They married in 1974, and divorced in 1989. Until now, she has never revealed her story. Angela Levin is an award-winning journalist and a successful ghostwriter. Her previous work includes 'Read All About It' by Max Clifford.

Review:

If you think of Peter Cook, you think of the comic genius, the partnership with Dudley Moore and the alcoholic downfall. This book, by his wife Judy, makes Cook seem both funnier and more insecure than you might have though―SCOTSMAN, October 2009

wonderful portrait of a marriage under extreme pressure, and it is remarkably riveting―DAILY TELEGRAPH, March 2010

the book tells me much I never knew―SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

This book, by his wife Judy, makes Cook seem both funnier and more insecure than you might have thought―LONDON LITE
