Lenny 'The Guv'nor' McLean has become a legend
A bare-knuckle fighter turned actor, he is a street hero whose legions of fans, since his death, have catapulted him to superstar status. His autobiography, The Guv'nor, has sold hundreds of thousands of copies in hardback, was in the top-ten for well over a year, and was the number one bestselling autobiography of 1998. Amazingly, it looks set to repeat this accolade for 1999. The Guv'nor: A Tribute is a beautifully-produced picture book celebrating the life and achievements of everybody's favourite hard man. Packed with rare, never-before-seen photographs, it is compiled by Lenny's old friend and co-writer, tracing the course of his life from his early days in the East End, through his unparalleled fighting career with the likes of Roy 'Pretty Boy' Shaw. It focuses on his wife and children, whom he loved more than life itself, and for whom he would stop at nothing to ensure their well-being. In the wake of the phenomenal success of The Guv'nor, The Guv'nor: A Tribute promises to be the biggest-selling title of the new millennium.
