    Saunders (Edina in Ab Fab) opens this memoir?with the following promise to the reader: ‘I will?tell you all I remember, and embellish all that?I don’t.’ Covering her childhood in Cypress,?Turkey and England (yes, she really was?known as ‘Podge’); her friendship and comic?collaboration with Dawn French, whom she?met at teacher training college; her time with?The Comic Strip ensemble, where she met?her husband-to-be, Adrian Edmondson; her?work on French & Saunders and Absolutely?Fabulous; and her battle with breast cancer?(the self-titled ‘Brave Jen period’). The narrative?moves fast and sometimes unexpectedly,?perhaps reflecting this self-assessment of her?life and career: ‘There has never been a Plan.?Everything has been fairly random, happened?by accident or just fallen into place.’

    'As the steady march of time takes its toll on my memory and the vultures circle, I thought I should have a stab at recollecting how it all happened . . .' Jennifer Saunders' brilliant comic creations have brought joy to millions for three decades. From Comic Strip to Comic Relief, from Bolly-swilling Edina in Ab Fab to Meryl Streep in Mamma Mia, her characters are household names. From her childhood on RAF bases, where her father was a pilot, to her life-changing encounter with a young Dawn French, on to success & family, Saunders charts her life, including the slip ups & battles along the way.
