5.0 out of 5 stars Girls in the air, 26 Oct 2012
So pleased I read this book...I never knew that women had transported planes around the country during the Second World War. It must have been hard to track down the few remaining women in order to get this book together, but I'm glad the author did. Their lively stories really kept me gripped and it makes you think about how cushy we've got it today!
Jennifer Saunders - the Biography by Jacky Hyams

So strong is the comic character for which she's best known that it's easy to forget Jennifer Saunders exists in her own right and is not simply Edina Ronay. However, this well written and researched biography shows that that there is indeed a lot more to Jennifer than her car crash Ab Fab creation. As a fan of celeb biographies I'd say this is up there with the best of them. Highly enjoyable and informative.
