'If God is in the details then this book has a very strong case for being considered divine.' The Word magazine 'Magisterial' The Times 'There is no better example of the tragedy of comedy than Tony Hancock' Mail on Sunday 'Lives up to its title, dispelling myths and replacing all previous accounts.' Independent on Sunday 'an exceptional book' Oxford TImes 'Packed to bursting point with painstaking attention to detail ...a rich gift from Fisher to anyone who was ever a fan. Stage 'an indispensible book...a brilliant and much-needed account of Hancock's extensive theatre work and its originality, a celebration of the audacity of the television work, and a kind of voyage round the comedian's mind and the nature of his comic enterprise. The Guardian
