She has been called a national treasure and has had audiences laughing wherever she has travelled with her one-woman shows. Now Dorothy Paul takes to the page with the story of her childhood in Dennistoun, her working life from the days with Kraft Cheese, her marriage, and her roller-coaster stage career. The vivid characters familiar from her shows—her ingenious father, long-suffering mother, the tribe of aunts, and at least two criminal teachers—are joined here by Variety stars and a galaxy of actors, making the book a chapter in the history of the Scottish stage and of the early days of Scottish Television. Dorothy Paul presents a selection of the many parts she has played, on stage and off. Her story is touching, revealing, and ultimately a celebration of a great talent.
