    1. Harrowing insight into the mind of brilliant actress Rachel Roberts through the diaries she kept in the last 18 months of her life and the words of her closest friends. Not remembered as she should be today -- and she's as much to blame for this as anything: how much time and talent did she waste in her life and untimely death? -- but she emerged as one of the most promising and respected actresses of her generation on the stage and in landmark British New Wave films Saturday Night & Sunday [...]


    2. what a story. It's amazing how well Roberts wrote, how lucid and logical she is, even though her word is crumbling. I read this book on a flight, I could not put it down. oh yea, and Rex Harrison seems like a predatory jerk. I'll never be able to watch the original Dr Doolittle ever again.



    3. When I bought this book I did not realise the person I was reading about was someone I had seen on screen. What a tortured and unloving place the spotlight can be. And how sad that what drives actors to be in front of an audience is also sometimes their biggest fear or millstone. She sounded like a strong woman full of self doubt yet still able to attract people to her like a flame.


    4. Rather a well laid out book but I found out that not having seen any of her work the overall impression I gained of this woman extinguished any curiosity I might have had about tracking down her plays or movies.
