Bravemouth Summary

Bravemouth by Pamela Stephenson

"Billy", the ground-breaking biography of the nation's favourite iconoclast, gave millions of readers a fascinating insight into the personal and professional life of the genius that is Billy Connolly. Now, in the sequel to that bestselling book, the award-winning Pamela Stephenson celebrates life with the Scottish beastie as he hits the big six-oh. Here we relive colourful and epic moments from Billy's early life in Glasgow - the background to an intimate portrait of his marriage with Pamela and his life in Scotland, LA and the rest of the world. Witty, insightful and intimate, "Bravemouth" draws the reader into two very different worlds - hers of international sexology and the serious psychology of humorists, his of incontinence pants, being married to a shrink...and the finer points of banjo playing.

Bravemouth Reviews

Mrs Billy Connolly's tale of an extraordinary year in the life of living with her husband is as insightful, entertaining, serious and wacky as you'd expect from the author of Billy. Bravemouth is the ultimate insider's view of his filming, his charity works, his 60th birthday party. It includes personal insights into what makes him tick, and what makes her tick (it's her year too). It's a celebration but it's interspersed with serious reflection - both on what he does and what she does (the contrast between the inherent seriousness of her work as a psychologist, compared to the zaniness of his comedy). The nature of fame, the challenges of age, the triumph-over-adversity are all themes underlying the many anecdotes that combine to make this highly involving.
