Neil Gaiman gave it five stars, so, like a sheep, I want to read it.
Enormously fun bedtime book to dip into and out again...
Can there be anything better than this book? Answer is no. Even the index is a highlight. Find out and google the author's real name and obits for tales of mind-boggling degeneracy - that is if your appetite hasn't already been sated by this book.
Really interesting, but far too long for a casual read. As this was a library book, I couldn't keep dipping into it - it had to go back at some point. Also worth noting that it will need updating, as the late Jimmy Savile has since been embroiled in a scandal and some of the people have died, such as George Best.

I absolutely loved this book, it's huge but full of all of the great British eccentrics that this country has produced.
Brewer's rogues, villains & eccentrics : an A-Z of roguish Britons through the ages by William Donaldson (2002)
The "Shakespeare of toilet books"'s masterpiece. The best and most comprehensive of his A-Z funny books anyway.
