Review

Gleefully outspoken and bursting with hilarious anecdotes, gloriously larger than life . . . I pity every person that is not me right now, drinking in the glory of Margolyes at 80 -- Eva Wiseman ― Observer

Startling, thrillingly outspoken, provocative, potty-mouthed and exhilarating . . . THIS MUCH IS TRUE is never boring. Her personality is so likeable she can only leave you wanting more -- Lynn Barber ― Daily Telegraph

Reads like the Wife of Bath's memoirs -- Simon Callow

Wickedly honest . . . When I was reading this book on a train, a stranger asked if I was OK because I was crying with laughter -- Hadley Freeman ― Guardian

An irreverent, straight-talking, riotous romp through an extraordinary lifeSunday Post

If there is a silver lining to last year's lockdown, it's the fact that Miriam Margolyes finally had time to write her life story . . . invigoratingly outspoken . . . gloriously shocking . . . and captures her force-of-nature personality. Buckle up, you're in for a wild ride -- Charlotte Heathcote ― Daily Mirror

Now 80 - and no less outrageous and outspoken, the actress presents vignettes from her life that will induce guffaws as much as gaspsThe i

Blisteringly honest and hugely entertainingDaily Record

Ebullient and bosomy -- Roger Lewis ― The Times

Stories galore . . . Miriam Margolyes has a life worth immortalising in print . . . An unapologetic account of a life well lived. As irrepressible as ever, Margolyes's warmth and wit shines throughRadio Times

There's so much in the book; each chapter offering a tidbit of information both interesting and hilarious... It's full of life and vigour, as if you're conversing with a friend you've known for a long timeIrish Examiner

Brilliant stories abound in this memoir... which is honest, poignant and wildly indiscreet.The Guardian

As compelling, forthright and irrepressible as its authorChoice Magazine

Miriam Margolyes' autobiography is crass, brash, rude, crude, funny and sad, and as delightful and surprising as Miriam herselfGood Housekeeping

Book Description

From Blackadder to Call the Midwife, from PG Tips to Harry Potter, Miriam Margolyes is Britain's favourite national treasure -- this is (at last) her extraordinary life story and it's well worth the wait.
