A gritty biography of legendary hard man Lenny McLean by his widow Valerie.

Married to the Guv'nor Summary

Married to the Guv'nor by Peter Gerrard

When his autobiography The Guv'nor was published it turned bareknuckle champion Lenny McLean into an unlikely cult hero. Lenny died shortly after his book came out, but that didn't stop it selling over 300,000 copies in hardback and popping up regularly on the Sunday Times best-seller list.

Lenny always said he had enough stories from his extraordinary life to fill another book - now Valerie takes up the pen on his behalf. Married to the Guv'nor is full of new and colourful incidents, from Lenny's first professional fight at a fairground to his winning match against the Mafia's best boxer, from the many crimes he got away with to his successful battle against a murder charge. Val also describes his acting career, which took him from a starring role in TV's The Knock to his famous part in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Told by the person who knew him best, this is a raw, funny and insightful biography of an unforgettable man.
