Illustrated with 175 colour images from his career, and with a foreword by the actor, writer, traveller, and long-time friend Michael Palin, this book offers an insightful and entertaining portrait of Chris Orr.

Generations have now grown up with the A-Z as an essential aid to those quiet moments. It's unusual take on the alphabet slightly shocks but always amuses and is claimed by many people to be highly educational.
