Waterstones Says

Reliably outrageous and always entertaining, the irrepressible Miriam Margolyes holds forth about her extraordinary life in a riotous memoir jam-packed with jaw-dropping anecdotes.

Shortlisted for The British Book Awards 2022 Non-Fiction Narrative Book of the Year

Award-winning actor, creator of a myriad of memorable characters from Lady Whiteadder to Professor Sprout, Miriam Margolyes is a national treasure.

Now, at last, at the age of 80, she has finally decided to tell her extraordinary life story. And it's far richer and stranger than any part she's played.

Find out how being conceived in an air-raid gave her curly hair; what pranks led to her being known as the naughtiest girl Oxford High School ever had; how she ended up posing nude for Augustus John aged 17, being sent to C oventry by Monty Python and the Goodies and swearing on University C hallenge (she was the first woman to say F*** on TV). This book is packed with unforgettable stories from why Bob Monkhouse was the best (male) kiss she's ever had to being told off by the Queen. With a cast list stretching from Scorsese to Streisand, Leonardo di C aprio to Isaiah Berlin, This Much is True is as warm and honest, as full of life and surprises, as she is.

“Magnificently Miriam”

The most entertainingly honest book I have ever read. Miriam tells all in her own inimitable style. She really does tell all, warts and all. If you do not like to hear someone's inner thoughts and opinions then... More
