About this book
A profoundly moving autobiography from the popular actress, who made her name in "Brookside" and went on to star in "The Royle Family" and "Waking The Dead". She recounts her working-class Liverpudlian childhood, her teenage years in the 1960s, when she was friends with the Beatles, and her acting success over the last 3 decades. She also describes caring for her mother in her final months, and assesses the many thing she couldn't tell her during her lifetime.
Actress Sue Johnston always seemed to be disappointing her mother. As a girl she never stayed clean and tidy like her cousins. As she grew older, she spent all her piano lesson money on drinks for her mates down the pub, and when she discovered the Cavern she was never at home. This title is a memoir by this one of Britain's favourite actresses.
