And Away? is the eagerly-awaited first autobiography by comedian Bob Mortimer. Known and loved as part of the comedy duo - Vic and Bob - with Vic Reeves, Bob has been making us laugh on our TV screens for over 30 years.
In recent years Bob has become a popular contestant on Would I Lie To You for the incredible stories from his life, and Bob's first book is filled with more of the hilariously unbelievable misadventures that fans love him for. From burning down the family home to starting a short-lived punk band, Bob shares tales from his life with the warmth and good-natured humour that have made him a national treasure.
As well as reflecting on his childhood in Middlesbrough and the chance meeting with Vic Reeves in a London pub that introduced him to the comedy scene, Bob touches upon his life-changing heart diagnosis in 2015 that forced him to reassess what?s important. Warm, entertaining and irresistibly funny, And Away? is the perfect slice of Bob Mortimer?s world.
