A wonderful autobiography,
This review is from: Can't Stand Up For Sitting Down (Hardcover)
The life of a comedian is one that is usually touched by a lot of sadness that few ever hear about as they're expected to be funny all of the time so when I embark on an autobiography of one I hope that its going to have some humour within as well as presenting their life in an interesting way.
Having missed Jo's original Look Back in Hunger title, I was definitely interested in this one that dealt more with the comedic aspects as well as how it impacted her life as I've loved her humour for years. Its fascinating, it is wonderfully written and it's Jo's warm self-depreciating sarcasm that brings this to the fore in a wonderfully upbeat title. Add to this her own special journey through some life changing moments and it's a book that I not only enjoyed but one I look forward to reading again, especially after I've picked up the first title so that I can get the full flavour of this larger than life remarkable woman.
