Get a fascinating insight into the man behind the make-up and glasses in Barry Humphries' one and only autobiography
Because Barry Humphries has deliberately furnished would-be biographers with whimsical fictions and blatant mystifications, the true details of his life are among the best-kept secrets of our time. More Please, prophetically his first utterance, reveals the man behind the actor.
