"Stan and Ollie: The Roots of Comedy: The Double Life of Laurel and Hardy": by Simon Louvish. Oliver Hardy ("Babe" to his family and friends) was my uncle. This cover always makes me smile happily. This is a very fine biography.
Sweet memories watching Laurel and Hardy. As odd a couple as any, the exploits of this bumbling due kept me enthralled all through my childhood and adolescence. This is comedy at its finest, pure unadulterated fun, kept me in good humour.
