PLAYAWAY. For twenty years Miles Kington wrote a humorous column in which everything was made up and nothing could be trusted. This, his autobiography, was written to those same exacting standards. Was his father really a German spy? Did his mother insist on permission from the Vatican before dancing on Sundays? Was baby Miles the victim of pram-napping and can he really claim credit as co-creator of the anti-squirrel device? Who cares, when a book is as brilliantly entertaining as this one?… (més)

Many parts of this book are laugh-out-loud funny, and I was inclined to trust that it was an autobiography for a while, but eventually the disbelief could no longer be kept in supense.

One story in particular had me puzzled: if we're to believe John C Masterman and others, all German agents in Britain during WW2 were detected and in many cases turned by the British authorities. In Kington's book though, his father is lured into spying for the Germans for a while.

Anyway, if you like his other work you'll find this up to his wonderfully inventive standard. ( )
