9780099519478: Dear Fatty

One of the greatest comedy actresses of recent time, Dawn French has a career that has spanned nearly three decades, encompassing a vast and brilliant array of characters. Loved for her irreverant humor, she has achieved massive success while pushing boundaries and challenging stereotypes. In this memoir in the form of letters to people in her life, she describes her journey. Beginning her career as part of the groundbreaking alternative comedy group the Comic Strip, she then helped firmly establish a place for women in British comedy with Girls On Top, which teamed Dawn with Jennifer Saunders, Ruby Wax, and Tracy Ullman. As part of the wildly successful and much-loved duo French and Saunders, Dawn helped create a repetoire of brilliantly observed characters, parodying popular culture and impersonating everything from Harry Potter to The Exorcist. Dawn's recent role in the Vicar of Dibley showcased both her talent and also her ability to take a controversial issue and make it mainstream—and very funny. From her apartment-sharing antics with Jennifer Saunders to the death of her father, from her outspoken views on sizeism to her views on Madonna, Dear Fatty will chronicle the extraordinary, hilarious rise of a complex, dynamic, and unstoppable woman.

Review:

"Something of a revelation . . . in among the the gags and photos of her bare bosom, there is intellectual rigor and real emotional intelligence . . . I can't remember the last time a book made me laugh so much."  Sunday Telegraph

"Loyal, self-deprecating and garrulous, French’s story makes for entertaining reading . . . this is an original book, and will delight her fans and, indeed anyone with a sense of humor."  Mail on Sunday



"Well written, warm and funny."  Sunday Times

Book Description Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Dawn French is one of the greatest comedy actresses of our time, with a career that has spanned nearly three decades. Loved for her irreverant humour, Dawn has achieved massive mainstream success while continuing to push boundaries and challenge stereotypes. Here she describes the journey that would eventually establish her as a perhaps unlikely, but nevertheless genuine, national treasure. Dawn began her career as part of the groundbreaking alternative comedy group, the Comic Strip, marking a radical departure from the more traditional comedy acts of the time. Later came the all-female Girls On Top, which teamed Dawn with Jennifer Saunders, Ruby Wax and Tracy Ullman and firmly established women in British comedy. As part of the wildly successful and much loved duo French and Saunders, Dawn helped create a repetoire of brilliantly observed characters, parodying popular culture and impersonating everything from Madonna and Harry Potter to The Exorcist. Dawn s more recent role in the Vicar of Dibley showcased not only her talent but also her ability to take a controversial and topical issue and make it mainstream - and very funny. From her early years as an RAF child and her flat-sharing antics with Jennifer Saunders, to her outspoken views on sizism and her marriage to Lenny Henry, Dear Fatty will chronicle the extraordinary, hilarious rise of a complex, dynamic and unstoppable woman.
