Revue de presse

"Funny, as you would expect, it's also warm, poignant and raw in places. And she has a wonderful ability to remember what it's like to think as a child." (The Express)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Dawn French is one of the greatest comedy actresses of our time, with a career that has spanned nearly three decades. Loved for her irreverant humour, Dawn has achieved massive mainstream success while continuing to push boundaries and challenge stereotypes. Here she describes the journey that would eventually establish her as a perhaps unlikely, but nevertheless genuine, national treasure.



Dawn began her career as part of the groundbreaking alternative comedy group, the Comic Strip, marking a radical departure from the more traditional comedy acts of the time. Later came the all-female Girls On Top, which teamed Dawn with Jennifer Saunders, Ruby Wax and Tracy Ullman and firmly established women in British comedy.



As part of the wildly successful and much loved duo French and Saunders, Dawn helped create a repetoire of brilliantly observed characters, parodying popular culture and impersonating everything from Madonna and Harry Potter to The Exorcist. Dawn's more recent role in the Vicar of Dibley showcased not only her talent but also her ability to take a controversial and topical issue and make it mainstream - and very funny.



From her early years as an RAF child and her flat-sharing antics with Jennifer Saunders, to her outspoken views on sizism and her marriage to Lenny Henry, Dear Fatty will chronicle the extraordinary, hilarious rise of a complex, dynamic and unstoppable woman.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dear Dawn . . . Thank You 3 décembre 2008
Par Joseph Albanese - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I don't normally enjoy memoirs or anything written like pages from a diary. DEAR FATTY by Dawn French is the exception to that rule.

A gifted and talented performer, I have been a fan of Ms. French since I first saw her in a French & Saunders sketch. There, she was a dynamo who broke the limits and fractured (if not bent) every rule. It seemed to me that her comedy was too much to be contained, at least for one, central character.

WRONG! Her series: GIRLS ON TOP and THE VICAR OF DILBY proved me wrong. She is not only funny but one of those rare performers who can handle any type of comedy - whether it be broad or frace. Then I saw her in JAM AND JERUSALEM (or whatever we called it here in America) and I was taken aback by the multi-dimensional character she created. Dawn French's talents are limitless. Because of all the attraction Absolutely Fabulous received, I was always irked that the character of Patsy wasn't given to Ms. French (In her book, she notes that she was about to become a mother at the time and quite happy not to go that route).

In her series of entries in DEAR FATTY (who, by the way, is Jennifer Saunders) she writes to various important people in her life including: her father/ her brother/ her child/ old boyfriends/ her best friends/ Peter Tork of the Monkees.

Funny, touching and down-to-earth, it is a must read for any Dawn French fan. No, you won't walk away from the book shocked at the behind-the-scenes gossip or fascinated by the volume of lovers she entertained. But you will read a real story about a very real person. With no pretenses and with unflinching honesty, Dawn French shares with you her life. And for that, we should all be thankful.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dawn's Awesome Memoir 17 novembre 2008
Par daksna birch - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
If you love the comedy of The Vicar of Dibley and French & Saunders, you'll really enjoy this book. Written in the form of letters to various people she has (and has not) met, Dawn is by turns funny, insightful, and serious, always truthful and discrete about everything and everyone but herself -- where she is quite willing to share some raucously funny anecdotes. By turns amusing and touching, the story of Dawn's life is very well written and organized, with plenty of interesting glossy photos along the way. Oh, and jokes. There are lots of jokes about a life that is not always funny. Whose is? Very well done. Easy, fun and meaningful to read. Highly recommended to those who applaud Ms. French's work, humor, intelligence and love. Her story is personal with a universal appeal grounded in humble realism.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dear Madonna (the singer, not the mother of Jesus), 18 juillet 2009
Par Matthew Coenen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I think it unfortunate that you have not made Dawn French your bestest friend in the whole world. Or at least the world that is Britain.

She's funny and smart. Not the best writer (as one poor review states), but who cares? I applaud her efforts and her decision to make the book a series of letters written to family members, adolescent crushes, former lovers, and famous persons. Including you, Madonna (not of the virgin birth). You'd laugh, maybe.

I did. While the book has it's serious moments, it frequently gave me cases of the church-giggles. You know... the ones you get at those inopportune times that you can't control, no matter how hard you try. You hold your breath until you almost pas out, but the giggles persist. Sometimes to the degree you end up choking on your spit and coughing uncontrollably.

If you don't care to include Dawn in the close circle of friends you already have or watch all of her television appearances, at least read the book. You may develop a newfound respect for a person you know you want to meet. And maybe have as a backup dancer on your next tour.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Dear Dawn, thanks for sharing aspects of your life. 8 septembre 2009
Par Jennifer Cameron-Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Who is the real Dawn French, and where did she come from? I've often wondered. This memoir of a life in progress is presented through a series of letters shedding light on different aspects of Ms French's life. These letters are addressed to various people including her father (who died when she was 19), Jennifer Saunders (Dear Fatty), Madonna (the singer, not the mother of Jesus) and others. Those of us who enjoy the comedy of `Absolutely Fabulous', `French and Saunders' and `The Vicar of Dibley' should enjoy this book. Dawn French is observant, insightful, humorous and pensive and reading about her life before she became famous provides another dimension.

These letters provide snapshots of Ms French's life from childhood (including a meeting with the Queen Mother), her life at school (including some crushes on various pop stars) and her life as Dawn French (woman, wife, mother and actor). I liked the snippets shared and enjoyed the snapshots of different phases of Ms French's life.

Memoirs can be unreliable, and will always be incomplete. Dawn French's life is a work in progress, and I'm looking forward to the next instalment.

Wondrously written, and such a wonderful and extraordinary life. An insight into one of my favourite comedienne's life, and one that fills you with laughter throughout, as well as having some very moving moments. Dawn French is simply wonderful.
