I really enjoyed this book. It felt like attending rehearsals yourself and you get to really feel the atmosphere of what it would be like to work on stage and tv. Oh and one bit in particular made me smile. It seems Anna Massey read some Jackanory stories! I use to love that as a child myself! The book did bring back one sad memory for me though. When i was at school i adored acting and had wanted to carry on with it. But at the time i was told a deaf person had no future in acting and it could not be done. So i never did continue after i left school which i bitterly regret. Of course today there is plenty of support in place but back in the 70s and early 80s there was no support. But yes i enjoyed this book immensely, and would read it again. I was sorry when the tales came to an end and was left wanting more! Like an audience who has seen a really good show and gives an encore! I will remember this book for a long time to come.
What an interesting and colourful life she led, and what interesting pople she met.
A good read. Thank you!
