"The funniest book I've read this year". (Harry Hill). "Laugh out loud funny, as well as being a detailed and thorough look at a certain strange aspect of the British counter culture over the last 30 years, seen through the judgmental and jaundiced eyes of Eldon's most enduring comic character". (Stewart Lee). "Kevin Eldon's excellent and often hilarious biography". (Bill Bailey). "The best fictional biography since Alan Partridge's We Need To Talk About Alan". (Steve Bennett Kevin Eldon has starred in classic comedies from I'm Alan Partridge to Big Train, Hot Fuzz to The IT Crowd. Here he goes on the trail of his cousin, a man described as 'judgmental and jaundiced' by Stewart Lee - poet Paul Hamilton. It's fair to say that they don't hit it off. My Prefect Cousin charts the roller coaster ride of Hamilton's life; the emotional highs, the murky depths, with personal contributions from the poet that are often characterised by a brutal honesty that is not for the weak stomached. My Prefect Cousin also contains for the very first time on the printed page 'Shadows of Reflections', the anthology of poetry Hamilton has failed for so long to find a publisher for. Until now.
