Having worked herself up from the early days of [GBP]7-a-night comedy clubs, Dawn French is today the doyenne of British comedy. One half of one of the funniest and most successful comedy double acts of all time, French and Saunders, her brilliantly observed performances have established her as a formidable comic talent in her own right. Now the first biography of Dawn French tells the full remarkable story of her rise to fame, from her childhood and the trauma of her father's death, to her meeting with Jennifer Saunders, her 18-year marriage to Lenny Henry and beyond. It is an entertaining and often moving story, which will be an essential read for her millions of fans.
