Book Synopsis



"A frank, intriguing memoir."
--People "Painfully shrewd, and written with real delicacy and pathos."
--The New York Times Book Review "Home reflects the very qualities that first made the working-class English singer a star 45 years ago: intelligence, gentle humor, and a clear, sweet, surprisingly powerful voice . . . In warmly nostalgic later chapters, the book begins to glow."
--Entertainment Weekly "A delightful remembrance of her own childhood, and an engrossing prelude to her cinematic career . . . Andrews is an accomplished writer who holds back nothing while adding a patina of poetry to the antics and anecdotes throughout this memoir of bittersweet backstage encounters and theatrical triumphs."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Frank and fascinating . . . Andrews comes across as plainspoken, guilelessly charming and resoundingly tough."
--Time In Home: A Memoir of My Early Years, Julie Andrews takes her readers on a warm, moving, and often humorous journey from a difficult upbringing in war-torn Britain to the brink of international stardom in America.

Julie Andrews' Memoir Will Entertain and Inspire You

5 out of 5 stars
Comfortable shirt - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
I enjoyed reading Julie Andrews' detailed remembrances of her childhood and her growth in musical theater. She speaks fondly of her performances in "My Fair Lady" and speaks of how she had ot learn the cockney accent. She shares her challenges in rehearsals, how her voice gave out and she had to get it treated. Much of her memoir is devoted to her fond memories of "My Fair Lady" and how much hard work it takes to be a theater performer. I recommend Julie's memoir to anyone interested in her life, her descriptions of theatrical performance rehearsal and studies.
