Win Cook's book

Collected writings to be won

Peter Cook's writings have been collected together for the first time in a new book, and we've got three copies to give away.

Published last month, Tragically I Was An Only Twin contains a range of Cook's work from a schoolboy poem written in 1956 to scripts of Why Bother, the Radio 3 series he performed with Chris Morris in 1994, just months before his death.

Among the extracts are items from Not Only But Also, Private Eye and Beyond The Fringe as well as more more obscure material, such as his Daily Mail column. For a full review, click here.

The hardback book is published by Random House, priced £17.99, but we have three copies to give away.

To stand a chance of winning, answer the following question by December 1, when we will pick the winner at random from all the correct replies submitted.

Good luck!

Which of these was not one of Cook's alter egos?
