Media Reviews
This book contains excellent contributions by comic writers. The gems are Peter Cook's * Sunday Times *
One thing nearly all of the friends invited to contribute to this book have in common: by God they can write- The authors are a ministry of all the talents; the book is most enjoyable * Spectator *
Peter Cook Remembered is a moving celebration of a good man who made us laugh. Apart from being very funny, it has the bonus that each sketch illuminates not only the man but his time. It is a beautiful book and Lin Cook's final poignant memoir of her husband is as good a love letter as you'll find anywhere * Sunday Telegraph *
