Annotation:
Written with a self-awareness, humility, vividness, and humor that are typically lacking in a celebrity autobiography, HOME: A MEMOIR OF MY EARLY YEARS depicts Julie Andrews's hardscrabble English childhood growing up with her alcoholic mother and violent stepfather. After developing her singing talents, she joined her parents' vaudeville act, and by the time she turned 15 had become a tremendous success, despite her terrible shyness and isolation. Andrews doesn't play up these elements for sympathy or sentiment, but instead allows the scenes and characters to speak for themselves, resulting in a moving portrait of her life as a young performer.

Praise

"A decisively unsoppy account of a typically dismal English childhood, complete with cramped lodgings and brutish relatives, [told] briskly and without self-pity....The rest of the book is a jolly romp through an England that no longer exists....[Julie Andrews's] approach is restrained, and the quality of her prose such that you are reminded that she is already an established children's author." - Emma Brockes 03/30/2008

"[Julie Andrew's] lovely new autobiography, HOME, reflects the very qualities that first made the working-class English singer a star 45 years ago:: intelligence, gentle humor, and a clear, surprisingly powerful voice....No word yet on a sequel; with any luck, we face but a brief intermission before the glittering second act." - Jennifer Reese 03/28/2008
