PAUL O'GRADY first came to fame in the guise of Lily Savage, and was nominated for a Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Festival in 1991. Lily later became a regular on This Morning, took over the bed on The Big Breakfast and presented Blankety Blank, but has now retired. Paul, of course, currently presents The New Paul O'Grady Show on Channel 4. His previous books are At My Mother's Knee and The Devil Rides Out.Review:
"As a narrator, stroppy of tongue but melting of heart, O'Grady still charms and tickles. The comic scenes with his truly mythological mum ("the Madame Defarge of Tranmere"; "Columbo in a flannelette nightie"; "Eleanor of Aquitaine with a chip-pan") can touch the hem of Alan Bennett's robe... Leaves most fiction and history of the era in the dust." -- Boyd Tonkin Independent "Paul O'Grady's life has already filled two excellent volumes... Still Standing is another enjoyable and colourful read." -- Roland White The Sunday Times "Honest, funny and supremely readable." Sunday Express "I absolutely loved it." Alan Carr "O'Grady has a playwright's ear for dialogue, and his salty descriptions of raucous gigs in rundown pubs are a rude delight." Independent
