This is an auction for IF I DON'T WRITE IT, NOBODY ELSE WILL: AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY by Eric Sykes.

"His prose is crisp and dry, with a poetic, vernacular lilt...candid, erudite and most of all cheery. Warm and comforting."
- The Times

"Marvellous, funny and deeply touching."
- Manchester Weekly News

'A chatty, always amiable memoir. A far better testament to this game old trouper than the normal ghost-written guff.'
- Daily Express

Amazon.com review:

"Eric Sykes has carved himself an enduring place as one of Britain's greatest writers and performers. In his autobiography Sykes reveals his extraordinary life working alongside a generation of legendary comedians and entertainers, despite being dogged by deafness and eventually virtual blindness. From 1959 until her death in 1980, Syke's starred with Hattie Jacques in one of Britain's best loved sitcoms Sykes and A…. Throughout the two decade run of this show he continued to work alongside a host of stars including Charlie Drake, Tommy Cooper, Tony Hancock, Spike Milligan, Johnny Speight, Ray Galton and Alan Simpson. His comedy has always sported an essential core of warm humanity and this, along with his genuine creative genius continues to prove an unforgettably winning combination."
