5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and sad but really worth reading
Delia as well as her sister Nora just get it. They write what you think. Funny and sad but really worth reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's all about me
Coming shortly after the death of the author's famous sister Norah, this book focuses to some extent on the author's family, but to a much larger degree on the movie industry - particularly the script writing business.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's all about me, 18 Dec 2013

Coming shortly after the death of the author's famous sister Norah, this book focuses to some extent on the author's family, but to a much larger degree on the movie industry - particularly the script writing business. But although many people and events make their appearances, it is obvious that the author is not interested in them per se. Her obsession is with her own reaction to them - which gets a bit tiring after a while. There is also a very strong subtext. This being that her far more famous and accomplished sister Norah couldn't have achieved what she did without Delia's selfless cooperation and help. The witty and accomplished prose barely conceals the smell of sour grapes. But an enjoyable and easy read none the less.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit disappointing, 12 Aug 2014

Bought this for my mother, having read and heard some good reviews. I didn't get a chance to read it before wrapping it up, but she admitted later to being disappointed by it. Apparently Delia comes off as very self-involved, and there weren't as many heart-warming moments (especially concerning sister Nora) as we'd expected.
