Overview

For the first time John Fisher, 'Keeper of the Cooper flame', collects the cream of Tommy Cooper's personal archive bequeathed to Fisher by Cooper's widow Gwen and manager Miff Ferrie.
 
On the horizon for this Christmas is this startling compilation of the life of the much loved comedian, reproducing in many cases for the first time not only photographs and memorabilia but documents from his personal archive that have never been seen before. Had Cooper kept up a diary this is what he would have produced. Souvenirs from his many stage triumphs jostle side by side with candid shots of him at play with his family, many revealing a side to the man the public never really saw. Here is the authentic side of Tommy in the forces, the early show business struggle, the backstage world of his magic, the newspaper coverage of the most recognisable man in Britain, the crazy japes at home with wife Gwen, and so much more. The large format book is produced throughout in full colour and has accompanying text to put the successive stages of his life in full context. And if you don't want to follow his life in biographical detail, just sit back and relax by laughing at the many jokes that also crowd the pages. They tell their own story!
