About the Author
The legendary and iconic figure, Spike Milligan was born at Ahmednagar in India in 1918. He received his first education in a tent in the Hyderabad Sindh desert and graduated from there, through a series of Roman Catholic schools in India and England, to the Lewisham Polytechnic. He then plunged into the world of Show Business, seduced by his first stage appearance, at the age of eight, in the nativity play of his Poona convent school. He began his career as a band musician, but became famous as a humorous scriptwriter and actor in both films and broadcasting. He was the creator, principal writer and performer of the infamous Goon Show. Spike received an honorary CBE in 1992 and Knighthood in 2000. He died in 2002.

But you'll especially love it if you read it while in Ireland. There is a subtle cheekiness about the style of writing and the plot as a whole that embodies the nature of Ireland itself. Ummm... okay, so basically, it's an easy read, it will make you laugh, you'll end up writing your own 5-star review afterward.
