Synopsis

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.
