Going on the Turn Being the Extraordinary Stories of My Life and Dodging Death's Door

Written by Danny Baker

Going on the Turn Being the Extraordinary Stories of My Life and Dodging Death's Door Synopsis

In this book my father dies. I almost die.*** My showbiz career winds down. And yet everyone keeps telling me it's the funniest book I've ever written. If I'd known that's what the public wanted, I'd have cancelled Pets Win Prizes and just got sick sooner. Along the way this time we encounter, among others, David Bowie, Kanye West (I think), John Cleese, Peter O'Toole, and have several adventures in the Fourth Dimension. Oh, and I can reveal the Man With The Foulest Mouth In All Show Business. Plus assorted high-kicking hoopla and a whole lot of rather stark stuff about what it's like to be told you could be On The Way Out. *** (SPOILER ALERT: I don't actually die.)

He is fantastically good company, a giddy, loquacious raconteur with brio to burn but rarely any malice -- Stuart Maconie * MAIL ON SUNDAY EVENT * If there were awards for laughs in non-fiction, Going On The Turn ... should win them all -- Olivia Cole * GQ *
