Re: Autobiographies
Another favourite and well read tome in my library is 'He had a big nose: i was his cat', the 1991 biog of Postman Pats cat, Jess.

In it Jess recounts the scintillating tale of all the years he spent at Pats side, travelling loyally as his wing - cat in Pats postal delivery van, sometimes at speeds of 11 miles an hour as they drove round little village bends and over bumpy little model bridges past trees made of sponge and cooked broccoli.

Its all in there - Pats heroin addiction, their feuds with Thomas the tank engine, Jess's torrid sexual encounters with Mrs Jessop the elderly post mistress and of course Pats infamous tiny model matress in the back of the van on which he shagged his way round their postal rounds and routes.

The most heart rending chapter is the one in which Pats massive nose gets trapped in a supermarket conveyor belt whilst he is buying fresh seasonal asparagus fronds, and his entire head is wrenched off, thus tragically ending 9 series of their hit tv show. Jess was alone and morose.

Jess went on to appear in a few series of minder, briefly starred as the lazy wall top cat in coronation street then sadly died in a qualcast hover mower accident at michael barrymores sex mansion

'Spitting at innocents', the 1982 ghost written autobiography of Spit the dog is an emotional tour de force, one of the best works ever put down by a drunk scottish dog with a hand controlling its mouth via its arsehole.

The chapter where Spit recounts his 1978 knife fight with Basil Brush is sublime in its rendering of the violence and drugs rife in the hand puppet millieu of the late 70's. Spit tells it best -

' I didnt like Basil much. Moody and bang on the gak, i bumped into him in the French House in soho one night. I cut his bushy tail off with big scissors and kicked his back teeth off. This was my drinking phase. Bob Carolgees rang me the next day with an invite to appear on Bullseye but i was too coked up to do it'

I read Joss Acklands autobiography which was excellent..Norman Wisdoms' was pretty good and ,I know he's a kiddy fiddler but Stuart Halls was entertaining as well (I read it back in 2000)

At the other end of the scale I thought 'Left Foot Forward - A Year In The Life of a Journeyman Footballer' by Garry Nelson was a great read. He played all his football outside the top flight and describes what it's like to be a pro footballer but struggling to pay the mortgage



Our Sunday vets play against Garry Nelson... still turns out on a Sunday

That Robert Encke book was hard work. He could've added some lighthearted bits.

David Jason's autobiography is a good read. Worked very hard in his early days before becoming one of the biggest TV stars this country has produced.

Do you actually know this cunt Blimey?


He stalked me for ages. Kept organising meets and never turned up. Laughable cunt to be honest, never fails to amuse me.
He lives in the states now and wants to meet me. Didn't have a pair to do it when he live here.
