One Leg Too Few by William Cook is the first full-length dual biography of Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, and the first to be written with the consent and cooperation of both of their estates, by bestselling author of Tragically I was an Only Twin.
One Leg Too Few will feature an extensive range of fresh interviews, previously unpublished archive material and a wealth of information about the most creative (and explosive) double act that British comedy has ever produced.
One Leg Too Few is a book about an extraordinary relationship: a friendship, a partnership -- almost, at times, a marriage. Like a lot of marriages it ended badly, but for nearly 20 years, between the first date and the inevitable divorce, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore were the funniest thing on three continents.
One Leg Too Few is the story of that relationship, and the comedy that came from it.
