World of Lies, as I must continue and finish, will be my only regularly posted work. These parts will be posted on on Sundays, with the possibility of two parts. And I did say possibliity.<br>Strong Enough will be posted on a whim with no set date. I will try to make anocments of when I do post them.<p>On a different note this is my new headquaters, so to speak. The things at larry need to be left as is. This resault is my anoucment play so itd be best not to post here. The second res is where you can actully talk to me and ask questions. Think thats all for now.<p>Remember: anawritesfanfics. Weebly. Com (no spaces)<p>As always,<br>Ana

The closest thing to writing your autobiography is to get your wife to write your biography.  (CURRENT wife, of course &ndash; ex-wives would probably be far from sympathetic.)  That, in a nutshell, describes Pamela Stephenson's &ldquo;Billy&rdquo; - the life story of her husband, Scottish comedian Billy Connolly. This does NOT mean that the book is sugar-coated.  The book covers such matters as Billy's sexual abuse as a boy, his substance abuse issues as an adult, his first marriage, his colorful language, his occasional (read: typical) inappropriateness in public settings &ndash; and, like many famous people of common roots, his fear of fate suddenly realizing that this Glasgow welder overstepped his bounds and doesn't deserve the fame and fortune which life has bestowed upon him. There's a lot of name-dropping in the book.  BUT, the majority of people that are cited as Billy's closest friends are the first-rung type of celebrites that you probably will never have heard of if you live more than 50 miles outside of town.  The garage band/pub musicians, the local actors and comedians, &hellip; the folks he knew on the way up. If you enjoy celebrity biographies, and you prefer not to read the unauthorized kiss-and-tell-all sorts, I would recommend this book. RATING: 4 stars.

I had known about Billy Connolly from the TV show "Head Of The Class" and i also knew about his standup. What of course I didnt know was his triumph over early tragedies and his view of the world because of his early life. He is brilliant and one of a kind and the book is a wonderful read and makes you feel every bit of anguish, triumph, and eventually love for Billy. Read this book!!!!!!!!
