The "Daily Telegraph" Book of Obituaries 3: Entertainers
Hugh M. Massingberd
Pan, Sep 1, 1998 - Celebrities - 336 pages
'a splendid anthology, both hilarious and melancholy' Spectator
Witty, enchanting, engaging and moving, Hugh Massingberd's third collection of Daily Telegraph obituaries ranges in scope from well-known entertainers like Liberace and Kenneth Williams to more obscure characters such as the one-time world's fattest man and a little-known pantomime dame. This wonderfully varied, rich and humorous book will appeal to all tastes.
'a funny and moving collection' Paul Bailey
