Julie Walters has been described as the nation's most popular actress and comedienne. She has been delighting us on screen and on stage for over 25 years and we have taken her to our hearts. Now she tells us her own story, in her own words. She was born in fifties Birmingham, daughter of an austere Irish Catholic mother. She was sent to school in a convent and from a young age always wanted to be an actress but to appease her mother she first went into nursing. This didn't last for long though and she soon went to join the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool. West End success followed, and she quickly replicated her success on film, earning an Academy Award nomination for her role opposite Michael Caine in Educating Rita. Julie's collaborations with her close friend Victoria Wood have given us, among others, the unforgettable character 'Mrs Overall' in Acorn Antiques and Petula in 'dinnerladies', and she's recently charmed a new generation of fans playing Mrs Weasley in the Harry Potter films and alongside Meryl Streep in 'Mamma Mia!', as well as co-starring with Helen Mirren in Calendar Girls. The winner of countless awards, Julie has continued to be in some of Britain's best TV drama and was awarded a CBE for her services to the theatre. A natural writer with an instinctive sense of timing, Julie's memoirs are warm, moving, painfully felt, fiercely intelligent - and totally entertaining.

Publisher and industry reviews
'I was enthralled by her memoirs... a celebrity memoir which is actually worth reading as a work of literature' -- AN Wilson READER'S DIGEST 'THAT'S ANOTHER STORY is funny, evocative, reasonably revealing and underpinned throughout by an appealing sense of humanity.' -- John Preston THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 'Walters's book - also well written - has moments of Alan Bennett warmth' -- Roland White THE SUNDAY TIMES 'This is a humorous and, at times, moving read from this much-loved actress.' WOMAN AND HOME 'The Walters who emerges from THAT'S ANOTHER STORY is a mischievous Brummie whose childhood seems to belong to an earlier century, with its horse-drawn milkcart.' -- Claire Armitstead THE GUARDIAN
