Tommy Trinder is himself one of the lucky people. His life story has been superbly told by the admirable Patrick Newley (Eric Midwinter).
Patrick Newley’s new biography is a slim volume, but it is the equal of any fat tome, since Newley tells his story with the same sort of machine-gun delivery as Trinder worked his act. (Richard Anthony Baker in The Stage)
