And there are Trevor Haken, Chook Fowler and the other Kings Cross cops who treat the street as their playground-and play as if there's no tomorrow.

Loving Peter: My Life with Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, Judy Cook with Angela Levin
10 Judy Cook with Angela Levin Loving Peter: My Life with Peter Cook and Dudley Moore
Piatkus 237510 Great Britain 2008 0749940689 / 9780749940683 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition Judy Huxtable, a beautiful Swinging Sixties model and actress, met and fell in love with Peter Cook in 1967. They were together during the memorable hit shows 'Behind the Fridge' and 'Derek and Clive', divorcing in 1989. Being intimate with Peter meant that Judy was inevitably close to Peter's comic partner, Dudley Moore, and they all formed an extraordinary bond. She was in a unique position to observe the special relationship that Peter and Dud shared, and the rivalry that existed between them. In LOVING PETER, Judy gives a perceptive and poignant account of the Peter Cook that only she knew. She writes with a mix of humour, insight and sadness about one of the funniest, most enigmatic and troubled men on the planet. She describes what he was like as a husband, performer, friend, father and man and gives an inside view of what really made him tick; why he seemed to want to destroy those he loved the most; how he succumbed to the destructive forces of drink and drugs; and how he and Dudley really got on. 278 pages.
