Born Brilliant: The Life of Kenneth Williams

by Christopher Stevens - £12.99  John Murray Publishers Ltd (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781848541979 | ISBN 10: 184854197x

Kenneth Williams was the stand-out comic actor of his generation. Beloved as the manic star of Carry On films and as a peerless raconteur on TV chat shows, he was also acclaimed for serious stage roles.
 
Born Brilliant includes much previously unseen material from Williams's candid daily journal and also draw on rare in-depth interviews with friends and colleagues. Since the publication of edited extracts from his diaries, much controversy has surrounded Williams's personal and professional lives.
 
This biography traces the complex contradictions that characterised an extraordinary life and presents the first full portrait of a star who was born brilliant.
