So Farewell Then book. An interesting insight into the times, but as a biography about Peter Cook it was disappointing in its focus on Wendy, his wife.

So Farewell Then book. As a comedian, Peter Cook had elements of genius, but as a man- husband, father, friend and colleague, the book portrays him as selfish, cruel, violent and self-destructive.

So Farewell Then: The Bi. .has been added to your Basket. I want to read about Peter Cook, have a laugh, and see some of the other side of his life. Sadly, for Wendy and readers of this book - Peter and Wendy seemed to be apart for most of the time - so we only realy see Wendy's life. To sum up, having read this book, I'd have probably divorced her as well. Sorry Wendy - please re-title this book "So Hello then: I was married to Peter Cook", or "Wendy Cook by Wendy Cook".

Peter Cook was one of the most significant influences on British comedy of the last 50 years. Caustic, cruel but genuinely and effortlessly witty, Cook was one of the prime architects of the satire boom of the sixties, achieving fame first in the revue 'Beyond The Fringe' with Dudley Moore, Alan Bennett and Jonathan Miller, then in the television comedy sketch show 'Not Only But Also', starring himself and Moore.

So Farewell Then: The Biography of Peter Cook by Wendy Cook (HarperCollins, £. 9, pp400). Wendy Cook was married for 11 years to a great British comedy legend. A decade after his premature death, Cook's first wife looks back over the early struggles of Beyond the Fringe and wrestles with describing her up-and-down life with a manic depressive. A far from typical showbiz memoir, beautifully narrated.

Cook was encouraged to transfer these tales to stage monologues when he was a student at the University of Cambridge. Peter Cook: A Biography. Cook, Wendy E. (2006).

Wendy Cook was a teenage art student when she first met the handsome Cambridge undergraduate in the early Sixties. They married soon after and together founded the Establishment clubs in London and New York, and financed the satirical magazine Private Eye. Wendy bore Peter his only children and they lived together during the most explosive time in Peter's amazing career. But the price of this stratospheric rise was high.

'I felt eventually I had to go my own way rather than stay with somebody who was that nihilistic. Alcohol stokes up the demons and a completely different person starts to emerge. He did know how to behave well, but it rotted into something else. At a certain point I thought, "This will be the end of me if I don't leave now."'

Finally Wendy took her daughters to Majorca to live on a farm and the couple eventually divorced a few years later in 1971.

Putting aside 30 years of discretion about her life with the comedian, Wendy decided to break her long silence to set down her memories. Comprised of personal anecdote, musings of intimate friends, from Alan Bennett to Jonathan Miller to Paul McCartney, and exclusive photography.
