Synopsis

THE MILLION COPY BESTSELLER 'Warmly funny, dry and mischievous . . . Genuine and brilliant.' Daily Mail Paul O'Grady is one of Britain's very best loved entertainers. He is known and adored by millions, whether as the creator of the acid-tongued Blonde Bombsite, Lily Savage, the presenter of the fantastically successful, award-winning Paul O'Grady Show on Channel 4 or the massive hit ITV show, For the Love of Dogs. Now, in his own unique voice, Paul O'Grady tells story of his early life in Irish Catholic Birkenhead that started him on the long and winding road from mischievous altar boy to national treasure. It is a brilliantly evoked, hilarious and often moving tale of gossip in the back yard, bragging in the corner shop and slanging matches on the front doorstep, populated by larger-than-life characters with hearts of gold and tongues as sharp as razors. At My Mother's Knee features an unforgettable cast of rogues, rascals, lovers, fighters, saints and sinners - and one iconic bus conductress. It's a book which really does have something for everyone and which reminds us that, when all's said and done, there's a bit of savage in all of us... Readers love At My Mother's Knee: 'I laughed, I cried, I couldn't put it down and the characters really just jumped out of the page.' ***** 'Candid, heart warming and also hilarious.' ***** 'Wonderfully written, laugh out loud funny and poignant by turns.' *****
