Reviews

'This entertaining memoir takes the reader behind the scenes at Spitting Image and on to a series of hilarious adventures as a "teenage granddad" in the Outback of Australia.' Sunday Express ' ! many glorious illustrations ! litter this book ! [it] is worth buying just for the twin studies of kangaroos. Not that it isn't a marvellous read. Still Spitting at Sixty is that rare thing, a ghostwritten book that somehow distils its "writer's" essential flavour ! Hazlitt said we applaud satirists not out of love but fear. Impossible, though, to read this book and not love its author. Partly this is because it is so pungently amusing, partly because it is so unsickeningly life-affirming.' Sunday Times, Christopher Bray '! highly engaging ! a breeze, a pleasure to read, as it leaps from anecdote to anecdote with aplomb and much humour. Like all the best people, Law is a dedicated fan of P.G.Wodehouse, and there are some lovely jokes here, if not the awesomely polished prose of his hero. This is a much more distinctive piece of work than the usual run of showbiz memoirs. And yet there is clearly something going on underneath ! great entertainment, and his paintings, which somehow manage to be both bold and delicate, are quite something.' Daily Mail, Marcus Berkmann
