The first autobiography from the national treasure, critically acclaimed actress and much-loved Gavin and Stacey star.

Growing up in Liverpool as the entertainer of the family, impersonating neighbours to the delight of her friends and playing pranks on her unwitting mother (from which the poor carpet never recovered), the young Alison Steadman could never have imagined what the future had in store. But when she snuck off to London to audition for drama school in secret, Alison set in motion a series of events that would see her become one of the greatest character-actors of the age, and a national treasure to boot.

From Beverley’s overbearing party throwing and Mrs Bennet’s ailing ‘nerves’ to Pamelaaaa’s instantly-regretted vegetarian declaration, Alison’s colourful characters have found her fans across generations and continents. She has won award after award, with acclaimed film roles in Life is Sweet and The Rise and Fall of Little Voice alongside too many starring television roles to mention. But it’s Alison warmth, humour and humility that won her the heart of the nation.

This is the full, funny, feminist and entertaining story of one of our best-loved, and most versatile, actors.
