A delight from beginning to end!

Ms Grenfell narrates her own life story in this utterly charming Audible book. Written with great skill & self-deprecating humour, we join Ms Grenfell's journey through her early years which were dominated by the eccentric personality of her American mother. Throw in her Waldorf & Astor cousins, add her very English father and her brother & we have a fascinating listen ahead. This is a truly charming book filled with wonderful anecdotes of theatre life. I highly recommend this book.
