Common as Muck: The Autobiography of Roy ‘Chubby’ Brown - Roy Brown

Time Warner, 2006, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper would be Very Good were it not for the light shelf wear to the top edges and a small scuff to the upper panel. Text complete, clean and tight.

Illustrated with photographs, in colour & black and white. From the cover: “By the time he was nineteen, Royston Vasey had married, divorced, fathered two children, spent two years in Britain’s toughest Borstal, served three prison stretches and been stabbed white in the Merchant Navy. He thought his only career choice would be a life of crime. Fifteen years later he was one of Britain’s most successful comics, playing live to half a million fans a year as Roy ‘Chubby’ Brown. From an impoverished childhood with his abusive father, to his brand of comedy too rude for television and his determined fight against throat cancer, “Common as Muck” is a frank telling of a remarkable life, laced with Roy’s irrepressible humour.”
