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.
She took us from her very varied privileged background of high society to the depths of alcoholism. Her strength of character came through in all the facets of her life and her personality shone even through the tough times she endured and overcame.
I feel I would have liked her and, when I was reading this book, it was announced that she had died. I think she will be missed by many.
I liked her on TV and her personality shines through in this book.
I wish her well.
Sadly, I don't suppose you will ever see this. If anyone else does, I cannot recommend this book more strongly; it is both uplifting and inspiring.

Clarissa was what we used to call a game old bird, and her book is very well written, as you might expect from a former barrister. Very informative too. Highly recommended.Published 5 months ago by Sandra
