Brilliant bedtime reading - not too exciting, quite repetitive in that JG was going from place to place performing in Africa India etc in the last years of the war. Fascinating social document - research for my novel!

about grenfell: i took some books off, i am not obsessed (read the books i left on!) but when i searched her books, it was too easy to add them!

An enjoyable read about Joyce Grenfell ! I adored her friendship with Viola, and was sad at Viola's illness becoming so debilitating. Downside was too many people to keep up with!
