Sir Lenny Henry is one of the country's best-loved comedians with a career spanning over forty years. Here he writes about his youth for the first time. You might think you know Lenny Henry. Think again. 'Glorious.' NEIL GAIMAN 'Touching and affectionate.' CANDICE CARTY-WILLIAMS, SUNDAY TIMES 'Heartfelt . . . honest.' OBSERVER 'Moving, powerful and very funny.' MAIL ON SUNDAY In 1975, a gangly black sixteen-year-old apprentice factory worker from Dudley appeared on our TV screens for the first time. He had no idea he would go on to become a national treasure. Here at last, Sir Lenny Henry tells the revealing and very funny story of his rise to fame. Surviving a tough family upbringing, along with the trauma of finding out the truth about his father at a young age, Lenny beat the odds. With a riotous warmth and his trademark energy, in Who Am I, Again? he tells the heart-breakingly honest and inspirational story of his youth.
