Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of Julian Henby. For some time now, Julian, the Bridget Jones of letter writing, has been badgering decent, hard-working celebrities with a barrage of frankly absurd correspondence, often relating to his dysfunctional family and pets. Dear Celebrity is a compilation of some of his finest work and includes many of the best celebrity responses. 

So, can Matthew Kelly find Henby's mother a job as a Bearded Lady? Will Professor Lord Robert Winston be able to do anything to help Julian's hamster, David, whose locomotion is severely impaired by his erection which drags along the floor like a fifth leg? Will Joanna Lumley find the time to visit Julian's elderly uncle to talk about her career? And why does Sir Jimmy Savile insist on being the Loch Ness monster?

The answers to these and many more questions are to be found here...

Pointless free sample
I would probably buy this if I was, based on the free sample, and interested in publishing dates. I can only imagine as it's written by a woman it involves the mention of three
things at some point. The rights that women should have and not the ones they apply when it suits them, periods and finally how they think men are rubbish and prefer women to be free yet cant even open a jam jar. This sample shows no writing talent.... Just who the author is related to!

About the author (2010)

The letters in this book are so absurd the at the author could not bring himself to sign them with his won name. In fact, Henby is a pseudonym of Julian Henley.
In real life, Julian Henley (the man behind Henby) graduated from the University of Brighton with a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and is now a highly qualified humanistic counsellor. He has worked with clients from all walks of life but initially specialised in counselling people with drug and alcohol addictions.
Julian has cerebral palsy and is seriously considering getting his wheelchair turbo-charged to outrun any disgruntled celebrities....
