Disappointing series of anecdotes.
Reviewed in Australia on 20 November 2021
I had great expectations for the autobiography of my favourite comedian but I am left disappointed. I have read 140 pages so far and find the book to be mainly a series of anecdotes. The cruelty and abuse he experienced is described very well but most of the other stuff is trivial. He explains that the book was dictated to his daughter this is just how it reads. Connolly is a most interesting character who has had a remarkable life and this deserves a more coherent treatment than we get here. Granted I still have a lot to read but if it continues in this style it will not redeem itself.
