The Old Testament- but more mad, more merry, more . . . Milligan! "And God said, Let there be light; and there was light, but Eastern Electricity Board said He would have to wait until Thursday to be connected." There have been many interpretations of the Old Testament over the centuries but never one quite like this. Spike Milligan has rewritten, in his own inimitable style, many of the best-known stories of the Old Testament, featuring characters like King "my brain hurts" Solomon, the great oaf of a giant Goliath and the lesser-known crossword clue, Hushai the Archite. Believers and non-believers alike will enjoy this hilarious re-working, where the jokes, jests and jibes tumble over each other from Chapter One, Verse One until kingdom come.

About the Author

Spike Milligan was born in India in 1918, and received his first education in a tent in the Hyderabad Sindh desert. He then plunged into the world of show business, seduced by his first stage appearance, at the age of eight, in the nativity play of his Poona convent school. He began his career as a band musician, but has since become famous as a humorous scriptwriter and actor in both films and broadcasting. Spike's combined book sales total over 6 million copies, and he received an honorary CBE in 1992. He died in 2002.

A great man -- Stephen Fry A totally original comedy writer -- Michael Palin Close in stature to Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear in his command of the profound art of nonsense * Guardian * Manifestly a genius, a comic surrealist genius and had no equal -- Terry Wogan
