Publisher's Summary

The astonishing and inspiring autobiography of Ricky Tomlinson, one of Britain’s best-loved actors and entertainers.
Famous as the loveable couch potato Jim Royle of The Royle Family, Ricky Tomlinson has entertained millions without ever leaving his armchair. Now, in his long-awaited autobiography, he surprises yet again with a remarkable story of love, hardship, humour, injustice and triumph. His mother used to tell him that he had lived three lives, but even se miscounted. He has been a plasterer, banjo player, stand-up comic, union agitator, political activist; film extra, award-winning actor and unwilling guest of Her Majesty’s prison service.

Great read

Where does Ricky rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

2 because his book is full of sadness from most of his life he is a great read he comes back up in the end

What about Ricky Tomlinson’s performance did you like?

He tells it as it is

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was sad when it took to 1970 to have children and 1973 when he was jailed how he kept sane I don't know he was a great actor loved roughnecks and the royle family

What a life

What a story and what a life. From his days in prison to his work in film and television this is an amazing story. Hope he gets his pardon for his mate.
