December 2010 Book of the Month.
Judi Dench fans will read this without recommendation but for others I’d say it’s well worth reading. Firstly there’s Judi Dench’s own personality which shines through in her dry humour and individual voice and there’s the range of her work from theatre to TV and film, in classics, comedy, new work, a good line in Queens (Elizabeth, Cleopatra and Victoria) to her memorable performance in the James Bond films. Not many actors can boast such a CV and not many can tell such a good story.
