Publisher's Summary

Dame Edna Everage, housewife and megastar, not to mention investigative journalist, social anthropologist, swami, and chanteuse, describes her life and times, from her humble beginnings in the Melbourne suburb of Moonee Ponds, to her marriage to Lord Norm Everage in 1946 and her subsequent rise to megastardom. More than a show-biz autobiography, more than a housewife's diary, more than a chunk of history - this is a Hymn to Life.

Love this book and want more!

What made the experience of listening to My Gorgeous Life the most enjoyable?

Hearing it being read by Dame Edna. She is so funny. I had tried reading the books years ago and did not like it. Once you hear Dame Edna telling you her story it makes a world of difference. I loved it and have listen to is a couple of times now.

What was one of the most memorable moments of My Gorgeous Life?

There are so many to be honest. I guess when we find out about her long lost chid.

Have you listened to any of Dame Edna Everage’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, this is the first time listing to her in book form but I would love it if she writes another one.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed a few times and that never happens to me. I had to stop the book until I was done laughing so I did not miss anything.

Any additional comments?

Love the book and pray there will be at least one more. I also wish this book was not abridged. I wonder how much is left out.

Hilarious!

Fans of The Great Dame will just love this book, and I really think the audio version read by the Megastar herself is the best way to enjoy it.
