The autobiography of Elaine Dundy, the author of, most notably, The Dud Avocado. Probably most engaging for those already acquainted with her work (or that of Kenneth Tynan, though you won't come away liking Tynan more than you did when you started the book), but still an interesting portrait of life among the luminaries of late fifties and beyond for those without such previous knowledge. The portrait of her difficult marriage to Tynan is the heart of the book (though not the whole of it), and is notable for her openness. Mostly, I come away from the book wishing I'd known her -- what an exemplary life in its way, and what a great personality.

In the begining as far back as I can remember, every night I said my prayers in bed to my mother or governess, whichever was at hand as well as to God.
