This is a book I borrowed from the library as it caught my eye on the display shelf.
and for her work in gaining rights for the Gurkhas. I think the last time I saw her on television was when she was doing a travel program where she went to view the “Northern Lights”.
This autobiography was very entertaining. Joanna confesses to being a bit of a hoarder and she found that it was difficult to select photos for inclusion in the biography. It was more a case of ‘what do I leave out?”. The biography has many photographs to enhance the story of her life in fact you could probably say this was more a photo album with added story.
I had no idea that she had been a model and a “Bond Girl’ or that she was born in India. The telling of her life in India and her time at boarding school in the UK make for interesting reading. This is a woman who is full of life and has a clear sense of justice. The biography was enlightening – a feisty woman.
There is a wonderful review of the book here in the Guardian.
