For more than 40 years broadcaster and comedian Kenneth Williams kept a journal of his experiences. This book is a selection of these diaries. In addition to offering evidence as to the nature of Williams's death in 1988, the diaries reveal a side to his character that many suspected but only few understood. They look at his own tortured sexuality, his relationship with Louie his mother, his thoughts on religion and his verdicts on friends and colleagues such as Noel Coward, Tony Hancock, Sheila Hancock, Maggie Smith and Joe Orton.
Russell Davies, editor of `The Kenneth Williams Diaries', is a journalist and broadcaster who has worked as a newspaper columnist and critic and presented numerous programmes on BBC Radio. He is also the editor of `The Kenneth Williams Letters'.
