Author(s): Joanna Lumley
The reader and I are only interested in the truth. Recklessly generously illustrated.
This is the book I've been secretly longing to write. There is so much in my overstuffed life that I've never talked about publicly before. All the things I love and dread are here: objects, photographs, people, letters, ideas, regrets, memories, journeys, being a model in the sixties, a daughter of the regiment, a friend of Dirk Bogarde; things I believe in, people I've met and can't forget; slumming it, lording it, failure and survival.
2004. Reprint. A near fine copy only marked by a small ink mark to the top edge. The d/w is unclipped and also near fine with light bumping to the spine ends.
Joanna Lumley was born in India and grew up in England and the Far East. She started out modeling for Jean Muir and soon went on to become one of Britain's best-loved actresses. Renowned for her roles both on the screen and in the theatre, Joanna has played the part of leggy Purdey in The New Avengers, a Bond Girl in On Her Majesty's Secret Service and perhaps most famously as Patsy Stone in the Bafta Award winning series Absolutely Fabulous. Her first autobiography Stare Back and Smile was published in 1989 and in 1995, Joanna was awarded with an OBE shortly after making the documentary film Girl Friday.
