Bonkers – Jennifer Saunders
The hilarious, touching life story of the creator of AbFab and one of most brilliant minds in comedy
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. This memoir 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, and 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.
