Summary

Linda Smith (1958-2006) was a national treasure and voted "wittiest person alive" on Radio 4. From her childhood in Erith, featuring her "sweet smiling fascist grandmother", and holidays abroad (to the Isle of Wight), to her early stand-up days and comedy career, Warren Lakin recalls Linda's story and their life together.

Warren was Linda's lover, companion, and chauffeur from their first meeting, driving her to her tour, radio, and TV gigs, and later to hospital appointments as her cancer took hold: here he reads the moving and often hilarious story of a life lived with wit, humour, and grace under pressure.
