    "A delight from beginning to end!"

    Ms Grenfell narrates her own life story in this utterly charming Audible book. Written with great skill & self-deprecating humour, we join Ms Grenfell's journey through her early years which were dominated by the eccentric personality of her American mother. Throw in her Waldorf & Astor cousins, add her very English father and her brother & we have a fascinating listen ahead. This is a truly charming book filled with wonderful anecdotes of theatre life. I highly recommend this book.

    "Joyce is a joy to listen to."

    What a lovely story of her life. Her insight on her watching and listening in her early life has given her a wonderful basis for her monologues and songs. The introductory song on this book makes you want to dance, it is a waltz, with happiness. The words are lovely. I am just sorry I never saw her live.
