About the Author

Joyce Grenfell's girlhood was spent on the fringes of the famous Cliveden that included George Bernard Shaw and Noel Coward but it was only in 1938 that she gave an impromptu imitation of a Women's Institute speaker and discovered her genius for dramatic monologue. She was an accomplished actress and starred in many well known films, including the St Trinian's series. She was also a regular to television, radio and the stage, and entertained troops during the war with her usual wit, charm and humour. She died in 1979.

Reviews

'Each one a highly individualistic character-study, not in the least resembling any other figure in the cavalcade. A series of perfect miniatures, etched in exquisite detail. ' -- Theatre World 'She had no image to preserve, no axe to grind, no future management to impress. This total lack of "angst" came across the footlights and engendered an atmosphere of extraordinary trust and love, so that audiences under her spell felt safe and cozy and somehow cherished.' -- Virginia Graham 'Very funny ... Grenfell was one of the finest humorous writers and performers of the 20th century.' -- Independent on Sunday 20051201
