Lovereading view...

Featured on The Book Show on Sky Arts on 27 November 2008.

This is a collection of some of Maureen Lipman's best writing, taken from previous books along with new stories and anecdotes. Some of the old stories are reworked here and there is plenty of new writing to keep the book fresh. It's a great book for dipping in to full of happy memories as well as sad told in the down to earth style we have some to expect from one of the nations favourite actresses.


Past-it Notes by Maureen Lipman

The witty way in which Maureen Lipman recalls her personal and professional adventures and misadventures has made her a best-selling author. The self-deprecatingly titled Past-it Notes is the ultimate Maureen Lipman collection, drawing on material from her six previous books and laced with a heady dose of hilarious and poignant new autobiographical material.

Past-it Notes is packed with beguiling showbiz anecdotes, wonderful stories, eccentric characters, bizarre situations and memorable encounters – all recalled and recorded with gusto and relish. To compliment all this, Maureen has also included affectionate recollections of her late husband, the playwright Jack Rosenthal, and of her mother and Muse, the irreplaceable Zelma.
