Jennifer Saunders' comic creations have brought joy to millions. From Comic Strip to Comic Relief, from Bolly-swilling Edina in Ab Fab to her takes on Madonna or Mamma Mia, her characters are household names. But it's Jennifer herself who has a place in all our hearts. This is her funny, moving, and frankly bonkers memoir, filled with laughter, friends, and occasional heartache - but never misery.
Bonkers is full of riotous adventures: accidentally enrolling on a teacher training course with a young Dawn French, bluffing her way to each BBC series, shooting Lulu, trading wild faxes with Joanna Lumley, touring India with Ruby Wax and Goldie Hawn. There's cancer, too, when she becomes 'Brave Jen'. But her biggest battle is with the bane of her life: the Laws of Procrastination. As she admits, "There has never been a Plan. Everything has been fairly random, happened by accident or just fallen into place. I'm off now, to do some sweeping..." Prepare to chuckle, whoop, and go bonkers.

A great listen, one of the best.
When Jennifer reads the faxes sent from Joanna Lumley. I honestly cried laughing.
This book was made brilliant by Jennifer being the narrator. Her style of delivery would have been lost if I'd just read the book. Her ability to put the character rightin your ears was marvellous.
Made me laugh A LOT. I also wept a tear or two when she recounted her experiences with breast cancer. It was obvious that despite her "putting a brave face on it" that it was a horrid time for her but she came through with love and laughter.
This book will cheer you. I ended up driving 800 kilometres over two days so that I could listen to this book. I had a marvellous time....thank you Ms Saunders!
Lovely and from the heart
