Publisher's Summary

Cilla Black is without doubt one of Britain's most treasured personalities. Generations have grown up with Cilla's music, TV shows, and performances. But how much do we really know about "the girl with the bright red hair and the jet black voice"?

What's It All About? is Cilla's own story, told for the first time ever. It is the story of a woman who has worked ceaselessly to stay at the top for forty years despite setbacks and personal tragedy; a life of incredible highs and terrible lows. In this deeply personal autobiography she tells her unique story in intimate and vivid detail for the very first time. This is the real Cilla Black.

Thoroughly enjoyable

Cilla's love for life shines through this book. I really enjoyed her narrative of her fascinating life in the Liverpool music scene in the sixties, through to breaking into television and then out of it. She talks of her career, family and many friends and of course the heartbreak of losing Bobby. Through all her success she comes across exactly as she appeared, totally down to earth and appreciative of all she had. So sad she is no longer with us. RIP Cilla.
