A further volume chronicling the life of an old age pensioner. As with its 76 x 5 Star Reviews predecessor Stairlift to Heaven those people of non-coffin dodging age should not be put off by this. Everyone will be old someday, if they’re lucky, and there are valuable lessons to be learned here in coping with old age, as well as dogs and dog walking, horses, faith healers, gipsies, solicitors, council officials, busybodies, and sundry other nuisances, plus advice on hoovering, letter writing, mounting a defence should you be taken to court, coping with being sentenced to Community Service (if your defence in court has proved to be inadequate),how to get the best of, and avoid the worst of, a holiday in Turkey, what to do should your home be burgled, and what to do if your bank has 'good news' for you.
Written by Terry Ravenscroft, former scriptwriter to Les Dawson, The Two Ronnies, Morecambe and Wise, Ken Dodd, Alas Smith and Jones and many more top comedians and television shows.
I’m in Heaven is about a man who doesn't believe in God who dies and goes to heaven. It will spoil it for you if I reveal anything further about. Besides, those wonderful people at Amazon allow you to read a few pages before purchase, so if you're unsure about whether or not it’s the sort of book you might like you have nothing to lose by doing this, except maybe a few minutes of your time. The only other thing I will tell you about I’m in Heaven is that it is far from being most people’s vision of heaven - all sweetness and light and lazing about on a white cloud with angels playing harps - but something far, far different. Oh, and the Beatles are there. All of them, not just John and George. And Sir Michael Caine too. And Robert de Niro. And Jehovah's Witnesses don't like it at all.

And you don’t want to know what he asks Jacob’s Biscuits for! But you will when you’ve read his letters to them.
You will never look at the contents of your fridge or kitchen cupboards in the same way again.
