Maurice Micklewhite is an engaging fellow. His film and stage career seems to be adequately portrayed in this autobiography. Not a laugh fest like David Niven's Memoirs, but still a good time was had by the reader. Read full review

About the author (2003)

Born Priscilla Maria Veronica White in Liverpool's heavily bombed, down trodden Scotland Road in 1943, Cilla grew up as a rough and tumble tomboy in a staunchly catholic household. By the time she was twenty - caught up in the incredible youth explosion of the Sixties - she was a key player on the up and coming Mersey scene, managed by Brian Epstein and friends with the Beatles. She enjoyed hit after smash hit as Cilla Black, selling a hundred thousand records a day.

Cilla became a prominent television presenter in the 1980s and 1990s with shows such as Blind Date and Surprise Surprise. Two years after celebrating 50 years in showbusiness, she sadly passed away in August 2015.
