I had heard Clarissa being interviewed on the radio a few years earlier and expected this to be more of a cookbook. What I got was a lovely surprise. This is a brutally honest, self-depricating tale of a very intelligent woman who has battled her demons and survived. Every page is a gee.
This is not a bland, celebrity autobiography. It is a memorable book and one that I'm sure I'll read again.
By the way, if you are interested in books about barristers and/or fantastic true stories, the best autobiography I've read in this genre is Animal QC: My Preposterous Life, by Gary Bell QC. If you like Spilling The Beans, you'll love Animal QC - the story of a man from a very poor background making the way to the top of his profession (despite being homeless for years, getting a criminal conviction and spending time as a football hooligan).
She had a great sense of humour, against herself - and was not one for wallowing in self-pity. This strength is what comes across loud and clear.
Sad she is no longer with us - but at least she left us her book! God bless her!

It made me want to wear tweed and eat more butter.
