Craig Charles – a man who it’s safe to say has had a number of interesting occurances in his life – is set to write an autobiography to be published in March 2008.
Obviously, recent events are likely to form the bulk of the book, as that’ll clearly be the main draw (heh, ‘draw’) for most people. However, it’d be completely remiss of him if he were to miss out details of his childhood, Red Dwarf and his previous and unjust time in prison. All in all, it has the makings of being a damn interesting read.
One thing’s bothering me, though. Hasn’t he released one of these before?. No Irish, No Niggers is a title that’s been floating around in the ether for years, and one that I’ve always meant to look into a little further, but apart from the Amazon listing and the odd mention* here and there, there’s little to nothing to suggest that the thing was even released. Anyone got any more information on this?
The new book will be called On The Rocks (do you see what they’ve done there? It’s very clever. It’s referring to rocks of crack) and it seems it’ll be mostly based on the diaries he wrote during Crackgate, which perhaps suggests it’ll not actually focus much on anything else, which would be a shame as there’s *loads* more about his life I’d be interested to hear about. Of course, the other possibility that it’ll all be ghost written from his diaries, which would be shit.
* Actually, that’s quite an interesting interview in itself! It still only briefly talks about the book as if it hasn’t been published yet, though…
