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.
A standard edition can be found here.
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 Coventry by Monty Python and the Goodies and swearing on University Challenge (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 DiCaprio to Isaiah Berlin, This Much is True is as warm and honest, as full of life and surprises, as she is.
