Über diesen Titel


"Darling Ma" is how Joyce Grenfell began every one of these entertaining, gossipy, revealing letters to her mother in the USA. They cover Joyce's rise from radio critic on "The Observer" to the popular star of stage and screen - and are imbued with her inimitable, enthusiastic personality. Joyce Grenfell wrote two volumes of autobiography, "Joyce Grenfell Requests the Pleasure" and "In Pleasant Places" James Roose-Evans is best known for his work in the theatre, including the one woman revue "Re: Joyce" which starred Maureen Lipman as Grenfell.

From Publishers Weekly:

These cheery letters from comic monologuist Joyce Grenfell (1910-1979) about the English social scene during the Depression and WW II will appeal to Anglophiles and other readers interested in the daily lives of the famous. After divorcing the author's father, her mother, Nora Phipps, youngest sister of Lady Astor, married a former Yale football hero, moved to the States and settled in North Carolina. It was to her that the author wrote about life on the London stage and at the Astors' country estate, Cliveden; her shopping, cooking and journeys; her entertaining the troops; her husband, Reggie, and friends Richard Addinsell, Noel Coward, Myra Hess, Beatrice Lillie and Stephen Potter. There's plenty of gossip and good humor but surprisingly little comedy in this well-edited collection by British director Roose-Evans. Photos.
