Book Advent Day 23: Lynda Bellingham



THERE'S SOMETHING I'VE BEEN DYING TO TELL YOU by LYNDA BELLINGHAM

Another memoir - and this one snatched from the jaws of death itself. It was published just before the writer's death, and I read it just afterwards. It's a lovely book - well-deserving of being as widely bought and read as it has been. You get a sense of Bellingham as this amazing force of nature - a bit bolshy, a bit full of herself and snobby (the chapter on stately homes is cringeworthy in that respect!) But what a woman. She is vividly and dynamically present on every page.
