With her grandmother the society beauty Dame Gladys Cooper, and her father the renowned actor Robert Morley CBE, Annabel Morley was always going to lead an extraordinary life. Evoking an English childhood from a bygone era, Annabel Morley brings back to life the magic and charm of growing up in a bohemian artistic and quintessentially English family. Their house in Berkshire is the backdrop to a wonderful array of events and personalities. Often surrounded by the greats of theatre such as Vivien Lee, Lawrence Olivier and Spencer Tracy, Annabel recounts these times with such wit and affection. The Icing on the Cake features not only unpublished photographs of the Morley lives, but private letters and personal memories, including her travels to Sydney, Venice and Hollywood during the glamorous 1940's and 50's. Annabel's passion for the theatre is also matched by her love of food and family, and includes recipes served at family get togethers on both sides of the word.
