Riassunto: 'Spike Milligan: His Part in Our Lives' is a unique insight into the late Spike Milligan, one of Britain's best-loved comedians. Containing contributions from his many friends and colleagues, it sets out to present a 'living biography' bursting with their memories and impressions of the genius who helped them, inspired them, made them laugh or, quite simply, was their pal. The many aspects of Spike's complex character are covered in this book. His wartime experiences are recalled by his comrades, one of whom provides a rare glimpse into Spike's battle fatigue and its treatment. We have a chance to see Spike on stage pre-Goons, struggling to make the audience comprehend his type of humour which would later irrevocably change the world of comedy. His first great love, Maria Antonietta Pontani, tells how she still adores 'Terry'. Professor Anthony Clare takes a hugely revealing look at the Milligan psychology. Michael Parkinson, Barry Humphries, Richard Lester, Michael Palin and Joanna Lumley are some of the luminaries who share their thoughts, providing many funny and poignant moments.
L'autore: Maxine Ventham is a comedy and entertainment writer. She has worked on a number of books including the classic tribute books 'Peter Sellers: A Celebration' and 'Sellers on Sellers'. She also organises and hosts comedy-related events. Maxine met Spike and Shelagh Milligan and became friends with them a few years ago when she organised a reunion evening for Spike and Sir Harry Secombe. She stayed with Spike and his wife many times and they always showed her tremendous kindness and affection. Maxine lives in Lincoln.
