Paul O'Grady is one of Britain's very best loved entertainers. He is known and adored by millions, whether as the creator of the acid-tongued Blonde Bombsite, Lily Savage, the presenter of the fantastically successful, award-winning Paul O'Grady Show on Channel 4 or the massive hit ITV show, For the Love of Dogs. Now, in his own unique voice, Paul O'Grady tells story of his early life in Irish Catholic Birkenhead that started him on the long and winding road from mischievous altar boy to national treasure. It is a brilliantly evoked, hilarious and often moving tale of gossip in the back yard, bragging in the corner shop and slanging matches on the front doorstep, populated by larger-than-life characters with hearts of gold and tongues as sharp as razors. At My Mother's Knee features an unforgettable cast of rogues, rascals, lovers, fighters, saints and sinners - and one iconic bus conductress. It's a book which really does have something for everyone and which reminds us that, when all's said and done, there's a bit of savage in all of us...

MEDIA REVIEWS
"One of the most brilliantly observed testimonies to working-class life I've ever read" -- Sue Carroll * Mirror *
"Funny, well observed and recognisably human. Soon you start to wonder why all celebrity autobiographies can't be like this" * Private Eye *
"Among the three-for-two slew of sleb lit heaped on the tables of the nation's major bookshops... At My Mother's Knee distinguishes itself on every level" -- Carol Ann Duffy * Observer *
"Paul speaks with warmth and hilarity about a childhood filled with poverty. Hugely interesting and entertaining" * Heat *
"While most celeb memoirs are as memorable as an air kiss, O'Grady's is a proper snog" * Scotsman *
"Warmly funny, dry and mischievous... Genuine - and brilliant" * Daily Mail *

“Very Paui O'Grady!”

A very funny book by a likeable man. The book gives an insight into his tough upbringing and the forming of
his many characters before he felt able to be
himself.
