Only Fools and Stories: From Del Boy to Granville, Pop Larkin to Frost
In his first book David Jason told us about himself from his early years training as an electrician through to making it as one of Britain's actors. This autumn, in a follow up autobiography, he tells us about the many other lives he has lived - his characters. From Del Boy to Granville, Pop Larkin to Frost, he takes us behind the scenes and under the skins of some of the best loved acts of his career. And in the process he reflects on how those characters changed his life too. The result told with his characteristic charm and wit is both funny and poignant, honest and heart warming.
