- Author Dawn French
The wonderful memoir from Dawn French that tells stories from her life in a vaguely chronological manner, in the form of letters to her nearest and dearest - and those she probably wishes were near and dear. It’s at times hilarious, at times moving, but at all times engaging, honest, warm and showing just how lovely Dawn must be to have as a friend.
She’s been through some tough times but I loved the positive messages littered throughout, about having confidence, about not reading bad reviews, about loving yourself no matter what your body size.
I really recommend reading if you’re a fan and perhaps even if you’re not. There’s some nice insights into life making The Vicar of Dibley, and what it’s like working with Jennifer Saunders, but plenty of real life talk too.
