Get a fascinating insight into the man behind the make-up and glasses in Barry Humphries' one and only autobiography
Because Barry Humphries has deliberately furnished would-be biographers with whimsical fictions and blatant mystifications, the true details of his life are among the best-kept secrets of our time. More Please, prophetically his first utterance, reveals the man behind the actor.
This best-selling book moves from suburban Australia of the 1930s, 40s and 50s to Humphries' international stardom and his revelations and confessions will astonish his vast audience, being so wildly at odds with all that has gone before.

Get a fascinating insight into the man behind the glasses in Barry Humphries' one and only autobiography * from publisher's description * A highly readable, percipient and funny autobiography. With Barry Humphries, the laughter is always tempered by the presence of something very like loss. -- Simon Hughes * Sydney Morning Telegraph * Humphries' past is a bombed and cratered landscape, except for his youth which stands evergreen in its quirky, vanishing details. When it comes to suburban drolleries, he puts Clive James in the shade. -- Jill Neville * The Literary Review *
