Oh, Dawn, how I do love thee, even though you are now doing FlyBy ads for Coles supermarkets. I have grown up watching you from your days in the Comic Strip, French and Saunders, through the Vicar of Dibley, and Jam and Jerusalem. To read this book makes me feel like I'm your friend - the letters to the various important people in your life is so intimate it makes me feel like one of them. They are by turns an absolute hoot and so very touching. Your grief for your father and your adoration of Fatty, which gives me that warm happy feeling that I also get when Tina Fey talks about Amy Poehler - I love that funny ladies love each other so much. Keep doing awesome things, dear Dawn, for I shall be watching and laughing (so they had better be funny otherwise I'll be that awful person laughing at you when I ought not).
