"One Leg Too Few: The Adventures of Peter Cook & Dudley Moore" by William Cook.

Broadly, it's a potted biography of the two, with early chapters alternating between their respective childhoods, school years, and university days. Then it's onto the "Beyond the Fringe" days, "Not Only... But Also..", tours of the US, Australia and New Zealand, the "Derek and Clive" tapes, and their eventual breakup.
Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

Just finished "Indianapolis" by Lynn Vincent and Sara Vladic.
A fascinating book about the sinking of the USS Indianapolis during WWII, and the almost fifty year fight to clear her captain's name of any wrongdoing.


Now on to "The True Bastards" by Johnathan French.
Book two of "The Lot Lands" series. Equal parts Western and fantasy, with just a dash of "Sons of Anarchy".
