I have just been listening to Ben Elton, on the local radio, doing a resume of his latest book. Yes, plugging it.
Not someone that I have paid too much attention to in the past, although I did know he was responsible for quite a few sit-coms on the telly etc.
The book called Two Brothers, though some family incidents have been used, is by no means his family's biography. Set in 1920-30's Berlin, it sounds quite good.
If you get chance to read a review, I do recommend it, even though it is not my usual genre of reading matter.
Think this is going on my 'Santa Wish List'
