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...

To Mr James Herbert, London. My mother insists that your books are the work of Satan. the other day I tried to smuggle in one of your novels. After incinerating the book, Mother scrubbed my skin with a wire brush to cleanse me of evil. There is only one way to convince Mother that your books are harmless: she will have to meet you! Please let me know when you could come and see Mother. We really do need to get all of this sorted out... There is one constant in Julian Henby's life: his obsession with famous people.
