This collection of stories, reminiscences and jokes showcases the wit and invention of the much-loved actress and writer. A selection of her Guardian columns and other pieces is interspersed with 21 new monologues that demonstrate her ear for voice and character. Funny and humane, she impersonates an excitable talent-contest wannabe; lets off steam at road hogs; grieves for her late husband, the writer Jack Rosenthal; and prays for lost chickens in Notre Dame.
