Publisher's Summary

Jennifer Saunders' comic creations have brought joy to millions. From Comic Strip to Comic Relief, from Bolly-swilling Edina in Ab Fab to her takes on Madonna or Mamma Mia, her characters are household names. But it's Jennifer herself who has a place in all our hearts. This is her funny, moving, and frankly bonkers memoir, filled with laughter, friends, and occasional heartache - but never misery.

Bonkers is full of riotous adventures: accidentally enrolling on a teacher training course with a young Dawn French, bluffing her way to each BBC series, shooting Lulu, trading wild faxes with Joanna Lumley, touring India with Ruby Wax and Goldie Hawn. There's cancer, too, when she becomes 'Brave Jen'. But her biggest battle is with the bane of her life: the Laws of Procrastination. As she admits, "There has never been a Plan. Everything has been fairly random, happened by accident or just fallen into place. I'm off now, to do some sweeping..." Prepare to chuckle, whoop, and go bonkers.

    ":)"

    Wonderful book, written and read by a hilarious woman. Written with her brand of comedy, with the odd sad story as well. Would recommend in a second! 5* Easily!

    Story
    "Slow start, but hang in there beautiful ending"

    Found the honest style hard to get into but really found the normalness appealing to me as time went on. Lots of laugh out loud moments and unusually you do feel like you've been let into some really personal moments, they may not be whilst out drinking with the queen, but they are very touching, and inspiring to enjoy daily life and all its joys.
