Pop icon Sandie Shaw puts her past into context and clarifies her place in the present as she tells with zest, humour and soul-searching honesty of her unprecedented rise to teenage fame and fortune, her plunge into poverty and anonymity, and her successful struggle to climb back again and make her real voice heard. Sandie Shaw was barely 17 by the time she had her first Number One hit. But the schoolgirl from Dagenham, who had also won the Eurovision Song Contest and been moved all over Europe by the time she was 20, was quite happy to jump off the merry-go-round when she married designer Jeff Banks, founder of "Warehouse", and became a mother. Ten years on her marriage was over and she was penniless. Once Andy Warhol's guest, she now found herself serving him in a Soho restaurant. But her spirit was never vanquished. With the help of her new-found Buddhist faith she rediscovered who she was and emerged from the dark 70s to start singing again with Morrissey of The Smiths, to influence a whole new generation of fans, and to marry creator of Palace Pictures, Nik Powell.
