Details: Him & Me is a hugely entertaining & irreverent account of a unique relationship between a father & son. Written in two distinctive styles, it reflects the larger-than-life personalities of its authors, Jack & Michael Whitehall. ' This book is a portrait of the pretty odd relationship I have with my elderly father. It's given me an opportunity to share memories of him losing his temper with foreigners on holidays, being rude to my mother's family at Christmas & failing epically during the fathers' race at my prep school. He's also written some stories about me, but can I just say, before you read anything, that I recall being a calm, well-behaved & learned child, not the intellectually subnormal, mal-coordinated dipshit that he paints me as. Nor am I, as he suggests inside, a sex addict, a flasher or a Scientologist.' Jack ' How dare Jack refer to me as elderly! People always tell me how young I look for my age. In this book, I have at last been able to recount the many occasions when I have been let down by my only son. He failed on the stage, the sports field & he even screwed up the interview for his first boarding school by pretending he had mental health issues. Despite being practically illiterate, he tells stories about me, strewn with grammatical errors & peppered with endless exaggerations & lies. I was a kind, doting father, who guided his son through his formative years with love, care & respect.' Michael 'I'm not your only son, what about Barnaby?' ' Oh yes, I forgot about Barnaby.' Packed with anecdotes, some embarrassing & indiscreet, many warm & touching, Him & Me is lavishly illustrated with family photographs & Jack's original illustrations. Friends, relatives, neighbours, teachers, actors, none are safe once Jack & Michael have opened up the Whitehall archives & shared their hilarious memories with us. Ideal for: Fans of Jack Whitehall & those who enjoy reading laugh out load books. This hardback book has 286 pages & measures: 24 x 18.5 x 3cm
