Description

For the last several years, the writer, comedian and Red Dwarf actor Robert Llewellyn has been gathering notes, old diaries, pictures and ideas for a lighthearted but occasionally philosophical book on his life. And a couple of years ago, after Christmas dinner, his son scrawled a picture of him that he titled `Some Old Bloke , which struck Robert as the perfect title for this funny, revealing and insightful autobiography. We take a meandering route through Robert's life and career, from the sensitive young boy at odds with his ex-military father, through his stint as a hippy and his years of arrested development spent in the world of fringe comedy, all the way up to the full-body medicals and hard-won insights of middle age. Whether he is waxing lyrical about fresh laundry, making an impassioned case for the importance of alternative energy or recounting a detailed history of the dogs in his life, Robert presents a refreshingly open and un-cynical look at the world at large and, of course, the joys of being a bloke.
