Brilliant, brave, controversial, combative, intellectual - just how do you become Janet Street-Porter?



Born in working-class Fulham to parents who for years she refused to believe were really hers, Janet loathed her mother, tried to murder her sister, and had a friend who was given a life sentence for a contract killing. In a household subsumed with repressive 'Welshness' (even the budgerigar spoke Welsh), she found solace in unsuitable friendships and outrageous behaviour.



In this mesmerising account of growing up in post-war London there is poignancy, mystery - and a trademark black humour. BAGGAGE will touch readers at many levels; it is as edgy and fearless as Janet Street-Porter herself.

Review:

An entertaining and often moving memoir, Baggage is written with all the fervour of a belligerent (Telegraph)

You read every page entertained, mesmerised and amazed (Independent on Sunday)

Her admirers will find the honesty with which she writes satisfying (Sunday Times)

Witty and extrovert, ruthlessly ambitious and unforgiving, Street-Porter would, on the evidence of this book, make a horrible enemy but a great friend (Independent on Sunday)

Book Description:
