Fenella will be reading excerpts from her recently published autobiography ‘Do You Mind If I Smoke?’ They are very personal stories about innocence, early struggles, professional jealousies and intriguingly a chapter about London tarts and gangsters. The stories are witty, warm and beautifully observed scenes from an extraordinary life – expressing great warmth for the characters encountered… and all told in that unmistakable, ever alluring Fenella Fielding voice.
“Fenella’s voice remains as seductive as it was when as fiendish vamp Valeria she asked, “Do you mind if I smoke?” in Carry On Screaming – before smouldering, quite literally, on a chaise longue.” Daily Express 2017
“The book charts her topsy turvy life – from the autocratic father who ran a cinema, to success on stage and screen, bankruptcy and a life on benefits, and a renaissance in recent years… It’s a great gossipy read.” The Guardian 2017
The evening will conclude with a short Q&A with Fenella hosted by Simon McKay, co-author of the book and a close friend of Fenella. Afterwards, there’s a chance to meet Fenella and buy a signed copy of the book.
