Well, pao is still not well so I’m having to rearrange things to deal with that. But all will be well – I know it…
Dear Fatty by Dawn French
This is our book club book for this month and was a score as I found it on the library van. Wow – book club book in the library van before book club. I need a sit down.
Being a member of a book club means that I get to read some books I wouldn’t normally consider. This is one of those and although I do like Dawn French as an actress/comedienne, I confess I wasn’t looking forward to reading this book.
The book is an autobiography written in the form of letters to various people in Dawn’s life and chronicles her life from childhood onwards including a visit to their RAF home by the Queen Mother to a 100th birthday party that became a wake.
I did find it a bit voyeuristic looking at someone’s life in snippets like that and even though I enjoy the Vicar of Dibley, Jam and Jerusalem and Larkrise to Candleford which she has been in, I’m still not sure I’d want to read her autobiography. It isn’t that I’m against autobiographies; after all, I really do want to read Toast which is about Nigel Slater who is someone I’m quite interested in.
