Publisher's Summary

Billy, the ground-breaking biography of the nation's favourite iconoclast, gave millions of readers a fascinating insight into the personal and professional life of the genius that is Billy Connolly. Now, in the sequel to that best-selling book, the award-winning Pamela Stephenson celebrates life with the Scottish beastie as he hits the big six-oh.

Here we relive colourful and epic moments from Billy's early life in Glasgow - the background to an intimate portrait of his marriage with Pamela and his life in Scotland, L.A., and the rest of the world. Witty, insightful and intimate, Bravemouth draws the reader into two very different worlds - hers of international sexology and the serious psychology of humorists, his of incontinence pants, being married to a shrink... and the finer points of banjo playing.

A true legend!

The time will soon come when Big Yun will leave that mortal coil and we will note a forlorn sigh leave our lips and , quite possibly, a few tears. Although I’ve never had the joy to meet this amazing man and he will never know I was here, but we share so much humanity! This book is a treasure as is Billy’s wife who narrates and writes this tome.
It is honest and touching and healing. And quite funny along the way.
Also recommended is Ms. Stevenson’s other book about this windswept “ beige avoider and detector” called “Billy” .

Sensitive, informative, intriguiging

Loved hearing Ms. Stephenson in her own voice sharing an intimate story of the man she, and we, have grown to love and to admire. Worth every minute of enlightenment and intimacy they have chosen to share! Thank you.

Not what I expected

Whilst she is probably more than qualified to narrate this book , she has probably the worst Scottish accent I have heard and its content is a bit dull
