And Furthermore by Judi Dench

This book is a commentary by Ms. Dench on the many and varied roles she has played in her life. She talks about stage, film and tv. She talks about different theaters that she has played in and short anecdotes about other actors she has worked with.

The book is told in first person. She talks a little about her parents and brothers also doing theater. One thing that I did not know and learned from the book was that her co star in the tv series A Fine Romance was her real life husband. She touches only a little bit on his illness and death.

Very interesting book if you are a fan of Ms. Dench, and I am. An easy read with a look into the life of a thespian. Very little about her private life mostly the book centers on how she got roles and why she played them. I'm not a fan of non fiction but I did enjoy this book.
