Publisher's Summary

The best-selling biography of Scottish comedian Billy Connolly, written by the woman who knows him best: his wife.

He's a comedy legend whose effortlessly wicked whimsy has enthralled audiences all over the world. His manic humor needs no introduction. But who is Billy Connolly? Where did he come from? Where does he get his material? What motivates him? What drives him crazy? And what is it like to live with him?

With insight and objectivity, Pamela Stephenson, a psychologist and Billy's wife of 10 years, takes us through his heartbreaking, hilarious life. She reveals the real Billy: from his troubled, desperately poor childhood in Glasgow's docklands to his days in radical theatres, his sold-out shows on the comedy circuit, his starring role opposite Dame Judi Dench in Mrs. Brown, and ultimately his emergence as a household name in the U.K. and the darling of Hollywood's "A" list.

Filled with riotous anecdotes from Billy's shows, personal stories, poignancy and triumph, this is the biography his adoring public has been waiting for: gritty, moving, redemptive, yet hugely entertaining.

What the Critics Say

"A triumph of the will, an Angela's Ashes with punch lines." (Publishers Weekly)
"There's simply no one like Billy Connolly, and Stephenson's meticulous account of his artistic journey is all the more poignant as a story told by his companion." (AudioFile)
