5.0 out of 5 stars La Gingold 16 Aug 2005
By Flo
This is a wonderfully witty book written with exceptional candour and fun. Hermione's memories of working with Ellen Terry, Noel Coward and Charles Hawtrey in the early part of her career are real gems. There are many extremely funny anecdotes which made me shout out with laughter. A very straight forward style of writing, easy to read and I must say this book definitely put a smile on my face.

5.0 out of 5 stars A present well received! 14 Mar 2012
Format:Audio Cassette|Verified Purchase
I purchased this as a present for my mother-in-law. The feedback I've had is how much she is enjoying listening to Hermione's story and having a good chuckle at all her anecdotes. Once she's finished the book, it's being loaned to a cousin of hers so I know I got her what she really wanted!

4.0 out of 5 stars Grand Ol' Dame 13 July 2013
By JCN - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Some excellent stories from a boozy old broad who travelled the world and made too few films. I wish I was old enough to see her on stage. Hopefully some of her talk show appearances will surface soon.
You can always hear that very distinctive voice in the background as you read this amusing biography.
