A long way from the usual ghosted celebrity autobiography, this is Julian Clary's debut as a writer of huge talent - perhaps closer in style to Fay Weldon or Muriel Spark than Dale Winton. Julian has led a unique life.

About the Author:

Julian Clary went to school at Ealing Abbey, then studied English and Drama at Goldsmith's College before joining the Covent Garden Community Theatre for three productions, most notably I Was a Teenage Sausage Dog. After some time as a singing telegram, he began working on the cabaret circuit as The Joan Collins Fan Club with a small mongrel called Fanny the Wonderdog, whose uncanny impersonations of the Pope and members of the Royal Family were a big success. Stardom on stage and screen soon beckoned. Julian has performed at fourteen Edinburgh Festivals, two Royal Variety Shows and the Vauxhall Tavern. He is a regular panellist on Radio 4's Just A Minute. He recently returned from his sell-out Natural Born Mincer tour of Australia and is currently playing Leigh Bowery in the touring West End musical Taboo. He lives in London with a cat called Gloria and a dog called Valerie - the recent star of BBC1's Celebrity Dog School.

Review:

"An amazing story ... a human testament worthy of a hundred of the more luvvy memoirs spouting self-congratulation" -- Andrew O'Hagan * Telegraph * "A wryly engaging romp" * The Sunday Times * "A witty, charming autobiography" * Heat * "This is a beautifully honest and sensitive account of a life and career stuffed full of surprising detail. I, for one, never knew Julian was gay" -- Paul Merton "Brilliant" -- Jimmy Carr
