*** The Hilarious Number One Sunday Times Bestseller! *** The follow-up autobiography to one of Britain's best loved actors and national treasures In his first book David Jason told us about himself from his early years training as an electrician through to making it as one of Britain's greatest actors.

This autumn, in a follow up autobiography, he tells us about the many other lives he has lived - his characters. From Del Boy to Granville, Pop Larkin to Frost, he takes us behind the scenes and under the skins of some of the best loved acts of his career.

And in the process he reflects on how those characters changed his life too. The result told with his characteristic charm and wit is both funny and poignant, honest and heart warming.

Reviews for Only Fools and Stories: From Del Boy to Granville, Pop Larkin to Frost

A terrific storyteller ... An essential purchase. * On: Yorkshire Magazine * A genuinely funny man - 5 Stars * Sunday Sport * A memoir that's as entertaining and warm as Only Fools and Horses * Daily Mail * Jason tells his tales entertainingly and is particularly interesting on the technicalities of comic acting * S Magazine * What I love most about [the book] is that, when I read it, I hear your voice speaking every word ... that's what make it, for me, really, really special. Darling Buds of May was a favourite in my household. There are so many wonderful memories and that's what the book is all about -- Christine Lampard
