Waterstones Says

From the duo behind the all-conquering Bananarama, Really Saying Something is a sparkling, funny and sincere story of lifelong friendship and a journey through popular music.

Music, fame, and a lifelong friendship.

Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward met in the school playground when they were four. They went on to become international stars and inspired a generation with their music, DIY-style and trailblazing attitudes.

Told with humour and authenticity, and filled with never-before-seen photos, Really Saying Something takes us behind the scenes of their early days, the world tours, party games with George Michael, a close friendship with Prodigy's Keith Flint, and hanging out with Andy Warhol in New York.

This is a celebration of a life-affirming friendship, with an unbeatable soundtrack.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'[A] touching testament to their lifetime's work, a delightful bedtime story for the Smash Hits generation.' - Best Music Books of 2020, Sunday Times

'Really Saying Something is not the most explicit rock memoir ever, but it may be the happiest. Written in alternate passages over the lockdown, it reassures fans that their idols were having as much fun as they looked like they were in their big hair, floppy dungarees and not quite matching stripy T-shirts on Top of the Pops.' - The Times

'It's that friendship between Dallin and Woodward that lies at the heart of this engaging, entertaining memoir that recounts career highs and lows, motherhood, break-ups and the menopause....It's all brilliantly recounted.' - Mirror

'[P]romises to be one of the most entertaining celebrity memoirs of the year.' - i
'Like something from a movie' - Dermot O'Leary

'A brilliant autobiography' - Martin Kemp

'A blast' - Metro

'What a nostalgia-fest' - Kate Thornton

“Not worth the read”

Got bored within the first few pages. Badly executed. I thought Bananarama were a trio.
