It was well performed, and diverting, but as Dench herself says in the introduction, this isn't really a memoir, but a smattering of stories that didn't make it into her earlier books. As a result, as neat as the stories are, they come across as minor and largely forgettable moments.
Certainly. She's a fascinating person. I'd be interested in getting her perspective on the theatre, on film, on women in the arts, and so on... but I'd like something more "meaty" than random anecdotes, though.
Not sure, but I was tickled by her accent for American characters.
As something to listen to while walking the dog... yes.
