No Room For Secrets

Joanna Lumley describes this unusual new memoir as the book she has secretly been longing to write. And now she has decided that the time has come to reveal the many aspects of her rich and varied life that she has never talked about publicly before: people, memories, journeys, ideas, regrets, beliefs, life as a model in the 1960s, friendship with Dirk Bogarde, success, failure and survival.

Joanna has given the book a fascinating framework: her house. She shows the reader into every room, from front door to attic window, answering questions which arise along the way: Why are you photographed with the Dalai Lama? Is this the teddy bear you had on your bed at school? Did you draw this picture of your son? Why did you make these pathetic curtains? Who are you? Do you lie to the press?

Lavishly illustrated, the book is by turns funny, revealing and poignant and provides an illuminating insight into the life of one of this country’s best-loved icons.
