BONKERS - my life in laughs - Jennifer Saunders
Famous for her enthusiasm for the lighter side of life which has kept her at the top of her game as is seen in her seven series of French & Saunders and five of Absolutely Fabulous and Jennifer Saunders has now produced her autobiography which is a funny, touching and disarmingly honest memoir, filled with stories of friends, laughter and occasional heartache - but never misery.
From her childhood on RAF bases, where her father was a pilot, to her life-changing encounter with a young Dawn French, on to success and family, the book charts her extraordinary story, including the slip ups and battles along the way.
Prepare to chuckle, cry, and whoop with delight.
Here are some of the UK reactions:
'Fabulous? Yes. Funny? Absolutely.' Mail on Sunday
'Beautifully written and frequently hilarious.' The Guardian
'Her account of battling breast cancer is as honest as it is uplifting.' Daily Mail
'Delightfully funny… she writes with moving honesty.' Hello!
'Hilarious and brilliant.' Kirsty Young, BBC Radio 4
