My son bought me this for Mother's Day. She is not a comedienne that I can warm to, and the book was not really my cup of tea. Why do authors think that using bad language and being crude will make them more popular? It just shows their lack of a good vocabulary - or am I just being horribly old-fashioned.

Re: Dear Fatty

My SIL loaned me this book ages ago, I wasn't impressed with it. I don't mind Dawn in some things but I don't know what it was about this as an autobiography - it just felt it was more about making money than anything. Some autobiographies are wonderful (Peter Bowles comes to mind - or at least what I've seen of it serialised - funny and entertaining.) Dawn's just seemed self-indulgent.

I dont mind the bad language, it shows reality, but the book itself was amazingly dull.

I wasnt impressed with the book either. And all that over the top gushing about Lenny Henry and his mid life "crisis" ie affair. They ended up splitting up.

Kayb, I'm rather with you, though I haven't seen the book. I don't mind what words slip out in conversation but to write down obscenities is a deliberate choice and inappropriate most of the time. I've seen DF only as Mrs.Arles in the DVD "Lark Rise To Candleford, in which she's good if OTT.

Having read the book, I can't say that any "obscenities" stood out for me. I am not keen on her acting roles but I think she is hilarious with Jennifer Saunders - especially their early days.
