The Lick of Love is a wonderfully funny, piquant and moving memoir from one of Britain’s best-loved comedians. Wherever life has taken Julian, there has always been a dog by his side. Fanny the Wonder Dog helped propel him up the ranks of the alternative comedy circuit and onto television. Told in the author’s unique voice, this memoir is the story of a fascinating life and a love letter to the dogs who have been a constant part of it. The writing is elegant, clear and often touching; ‘What ever else is going on, it is the water bowl in the kitchen, the dog hair on my jumper, the knowing gaze from the dog in the basket beside me that comforts me and tells me that all is well.’ In conversation with Rory Bremner.
