    " Joyce Grenfell was a real character. They sure don't make 'em like her anymore! Loved her as the innkeeper in Genevieve, telling poor Dinah Sheridan the hours between which she could take a hot shower! "

    " I love Joyce's voice when reading her own autobiography, she can imitate people so well, especially in phrasing. Everything comes to life. Not much has been cut from the printed edition. This clocks in at roughly three hours. She recorded this in 1976, three years before her death. "

    " This is a book to which I go back again and again. It lovingly describes a bygone era in which I fervently wish I had lived. "
