William Davis Esq.
8 October 1974
I am sending you another photograph. The one you keep publishing makes me feel I am suffering from a severed head.
Love, light and peace,
Here are the funniest, rudest and most revealing letters - most of which have never been seen before - from one of the greatest comics of the twentieth century to some of its most famous politicians, actors, celebrities and rock stars (as well as a host of unlikely individuals on some surprising subjects):
- rounded teabags ('what did you do with the corners?')
- backless hospital gowns ('beyond my comprehension')
- heartfelt apologies ('pardon me for being alive')
- and the imbalance of male and female ducks in London's parks
Here, then, is the real Spike Miligan: obsessive, rude, generous and relentlessly witty.
