Notes:
Award-winning actor, creator of a myriad of memorable characters from Lady Whiteadder to Professor Sprout, Miriam Margolyes is a national treasure. Now, at last, at the age of 80, she has finally decided to tell her extraordinary life story. And it's far richer and stranger than any part she's played. Find out how being conceived in an air-raid gave her curly hair; what pranks led to her being known as the naughtiest girl Oxford High School ever had; how she ended up posing nude for Augustus John aged 17, being sent to Coventry by Monty Python and the Goodies and swearing on University Challenge (she was the first woman to say F*** on TV). This book is packed with unforgettable stories from why Bob Monkhouse was the best (male) kiss she's ever had to being told off by the Queen.

Reviews
Very human account of Margolyes’ life . I found the inconsistencies intriguing: her enthusiasm for grappling with male genitalia jarred with her ardent description of her herself as a lesbian; nor did she associate such encounters as infidelity to her life partner Heather. Human beings are of course notoriously inconsistent. There are also some proof reading howlers.
