Review

'Jo Brand is undoubtedly one of the best female comics in Britain and her rise to fame has been monumental... Jo's story is honest and very funny'--The Sun

'Jo Brand’s Look Back in Hunger is one of the very best. This is mainly down to the fact that Jo has had a genuinely fascinating life (from psychiatric nurse to one of the country’s most loved stand-ups) and her style is engaging, candid and amusing, even when she’s talking about some pretty grim stuff. *****--Heat

'Larger-than-life, coarse but often very funny, the comedienne has produced a biography very much in her own image… provides lots of belly-laughs and, surprisingly, plenty of food for thought'--Telegraph

'As odd things always happen around Jo--ghosts materialise, coat hangers fly out of the wardrobe, pet tortoises attempt suicide--it was a short step for her to decide to train as a psychiatric nurse… her world-weary soothing baritone was to be her fortune; she’s rightful heir to the comic mantle of Beryl Reid, Joan Sims and Hattie Jacques. Though chunky, what’s largest about Jo is her heart, her humanity. I love her.'--Daily Express

'She comes across as robust, wise, amiable and pragmatic. Brand resists self-pity… her humane, sardonic intelligence shines through'--Daily Mail

'A terrific, uplifting read. South London-born Brand’s laconic voice shines through--indeed, you can hear her laid-back delivery in every sentence. The biggest thing about Brand is her heart and her generosity of spirit. She’s engagingly light-hearted and excellent company'--Scotsman

'A romp through Jo’s formative years… Her dry wit shines through.'--Now --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

With hilarious, engaging, razor-sharp wit and a gift for anecdote, Jo reveals the experiences and incidents in her life that gave rise to her huge success as a comedian
