"Searingly honest" (Daily Mail)
"Candid, affectionate ... Johnston's unadorned prose style, blending tender personal recollection with just enough showbiz gossip to season the narrative, is like listening to her chatting to you over a cup of tea - ****" (Michael Simkins Mail on Sunday)
"Warm, fascinating but brutally honest memoir" (Mirror)
"She lays bare the complicated and often difficult relationship she had with her mother with humour, warmth and honesty. Wonderful reading for mothers and daughters alike" (Prima)

There are of course the tales of the television work that Sue has done, and I will admit I wanted a little more than the snippets we got, but there is a huge amount of stuff in store for anyone picking up this book, and I don't just mean the stories of her mother. Sue struggled to find what she wanted to do after her childhood, which sounded wonderful, and after a stint at the Tax Office she found herself hanging out at The Cavern in Liverpool with The Beatles and working for Brian Epstein's company where she discovered `The Hippy Hippy Shake'. We look at her two marriages, being a single working mother (and the struggles that could bring) as well as her political involvement with the Labour Party and how she protested and rallied for the miners and gay rights. Sue Johnston is a woman with a lot more going on than just being a wonderful actress who has become a national treasure.
The heart of Sue's thoughts and memories are really those of her mother though.Read more ›
a wonderfully versatile actress who can do comedy as well as drama - she has hardly been off our screens since 1983.
immensely private about her life over the years - sue now tells the story of her early upbringing, her days with the beatles and her ongoing career. wonderfully illustrated and well written - a must read for her fans and people who love autobiographies!!!
It is a first class read and one I would reccomend to any one who, like me, enjoys seeing Sue on the small or large screen.
Once I began reading Sue's autobiography I couldn't put it down as I found every page interesting as Sue told the story of her life from childhood through to the present day. She is a very strong person with true beliefs of fairness and her love for her chosen art of acting shines through.
