LAUREL and HARDY
What they said:
Hey A.J., I'm 3/4 through your book, and am loving
every page. Really wonderful stuff
which blows the doors off a lot of traditional perceptions and beliefs.
Chris Seguin, Toronto, Canada
LAUREL & HARDY: THE U.S. TOURS is a remarkable
book. You have done so much incredible research! Many thanks!
Lou Sabini, Stamford, Ct. US
I was really amazed at all of the research that
you did to fill in a missing chapter on the boys. Great Work!
John Richter, Hanover, Pa. US
I've just received my copy of your new book about
'Laurel & Hardy's US Tours' - and, as it turns out, so much more.
Thanks for the great service you've done for all of the Boys' true admirers.
Randy Skretvedt, Buena Park Ca. US.
Yet another extraordinary literary tribute by
'A.J' Marriot to the greatest comedy team of all time. It is a fascinating
chronicle of the lesser known history of The Boys and chock-full of interesting
information and photographs - some of which has never been published before.
I congratulate AJ on a job well done!
Tyler St. Mark. Beverly Hills, Ca. US.
I must say, it was great fun. The book has lots
of good information - but also you write with such good humor
that it was a most enjoyable read.
Jeff Donaldson, Green Valley, Ca. US
Very impressive and very, very interesting. What
a work ! It is a true tour de force. Congratulations.
Jean-Luc Vandiste, Savigny, France
No brickbats here just - pure admiration for the
research and care gone into the publication. I love the illustrations being
scattered throughout the book at suitable places. And what photographs, so
many completely new to me. As they usually show the boys clowning around
they are also very happy pictures. I read the book with a smile on my face.
The humour with which you tell their story even extends to the captions ('The
dead Parrott fish sketch' indeed!) and I found the design with the little
cars, trains and buses particularly delightful. Your three L&H books
and the Chaplin tome now have pride of place on my bookshelf.
Phil Key (former arts editor Liverpool Daily Post for 40 years.)
Your book is tremendous, it's colossal, it's
stupendous. I laughed - I cried. I expected newspaper accounts, but you found
images of the Boys in every aspect of their career and personal life. Things
that I did not know! You wove together all the missing pieces of the puzzle
with your most welcome observations and wit, that shows your knowledge of
the subjects. Your sense of humor is apparent and most welcome. You stitched
together all the elements to make this a most welcome book.
Again, congratulations A.J.
Sincerely, Bill Cassara, Rancho Cucamonga, Ca. US
I'm speechless about all the new information that
Michael Ehret, Marburg, Germany
You have done a very fine job of tracking down,
documenting - and illustrating - many quite arcane activities. It all greatly
contributes to our knowledge of, and affection for, two delightful gentlemen.
Bob Dickson, Los Angeles, Ca. US
