Jennifer Saunders' comics have brought joy to countless people. Her characters are household names, from Comic Strip to Comic Relief, from Bolly-swilling Edina in Ab Fab to her takes on Madonna or Mamma Mia.
Jennifer, on the other hand, has a special place in our hearts. This is her hilarious, m... oving, and downright insane memoir, full of laughter, friends, and the occasional heartbreak - but never misery.
BONKERS is jam-packed with outrageous adventures, including accidentally enrolling in a teacher training course with a young Dawn French, bluffing her way into every BBC series, shooting Lulu, exchanging wild faxes with Joanna Lumley, and touring India with Ruby Wax and Goldie Hawn.
When she transforms into 'Brave Jen,' she faces cancer as well, but her greatest battle is with the bane of her existence: the Laws of Procrastination. 'There has never been a Plan,' she admits. Everything has happened at a random rate, either by chance or by design. I'm off to do some sweeping right now...'
Get ready to laugh, whoop, and go BONKERS.
The only life worth living is the adventurous life. Of such a life, the dominant characteristic is that it is unafraid. It is unafraid of what other people think … It does not adapt either its pace or its objectives to the pace and objectives of its neighbors. It thinks its own thoughts, it reads its own books. It develops its own hobbies, and it is governed by its own conscience. The herd may graze where it pleases or stampede where it pleases, but he who lives the adventurous life will remain unafraid when he finds himself alone. Raymond B. Fosdick
