The final novel from comedy legend Eric Morecambe.
Charting the rise of Stella Ravencroft from struggling entertainer on the northern club circuit to huge national superstar, Stella was the second novel from comedy legend Eric Morecambe.
The unfinished manuscript for Stella was discovered by Eric’s son, Gary, shortly after his father’s death. Encouraged by Eric’s wife Joan, Gary completed the novel.
Drawing heavily on Eric’s own childhood and rise to fame, Stella is a rare fictional account of a now vanished era of entertainment, from working men’s clubs to variety shows pulling in 20m viewers on the television.
