Written in a style familiar to his millions of listeners, rich with warmth and irony, MUSTN'T GRUMBLE is Terry's definitive autobiography. Not only does he introduce the reader to post-Emergency Ireland, his chain-smoking maiden aunts, his quick-witted mother and hard-working father and the (not so) Christian Fathers who tried to knock his hands off, he explains how he's managed to avoid a hard day's work from childhood to knighthood, and entertained a few million people along the way. Terry talks in full about his past 35 years with the BBC: his hugely popular Radio 2 show, his TV shows WOGAN (NOW & THEN) and BLANKETY BLANK, the Eurovision Song Contest, working on the BBC's Children in Need programmes, and where he learnt to breakdance so brilliantly. It is the autobiography his fans - and TOGs - have been waiting for: fresh, honest, a real craic and completely the same ... but different. Contains black and white and colour illustrations.
This 2006 hardback first edition is in a very good condition. The glossy dustjacket is unpriceclipped and shows only a few signs of shelf-wear. There is a small scuff on the front cover plus a few slight scratches and the corners are slightly bumped. The dark-blue cloth boards are unmarked and gilt-stamped on the spine. The page block is clean and bright. The author has added a dedication in black marker pen on the title page: 'To Margaret, Happy Christmas, Good Luck for 2007! Terry Wogan'.
