I love A Liar's Autobiography by Graham Chapman etc (Monty Python) very funny, interesting and moving, especially with the queer aspect. Hands down best auto-biography I've read (albeit of about 1.5). Had a small peek at Orwell and EM Forsters notes whch looked to be fairly good.
sound of laughter..peter kay! had me crying with laughter... plus, im from the area he lived so knew all the places n some people he was on about like: 'i used to go to that netto... i could've been on of the screaming kids he was complaining about!' :P
Margrave of the Marshes - by John Peel.
Although he died halfway through writing, and the book had to be finished by his wife Sheila. Fantastic read for anyone who was a fan really. He writes in a way that reminds me of Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchett. Quirky, odd and amusing at the same time - and also a look at some bizarre and brilliant music!
