A beautiful coffee table book including never-before-seen photographs, sketches and personal testimony from his closest friends, for the very first time.
Among the legendary comedy actor's bequests, in a will which itself was controversial enough to require re-examination, was a large cache of private papers and memorabilia inherited by his godson, Robert Chiddell, and subsequently acquired by Wes Butters.
This material, none of which had been seen before, included scripts and drafts by Williams, lectures and speeches delivered by him, a large number of superb photographs from all phases of his career, and creative writing which even extends to a fictional recreation of his own turbulent Cockney childhood.
Without ever arranging it formally Williams had unwittingly assembled a brilliant scrapbook of his life. Kenneth Williams Unseen is that scrapbook, enlarged and emboldened by contributions from those who knew and loved him and is a must for every fan of the great man himself.
