Wonderfully inspiring. A delightful spell in the company of one of our greatest and most thoughtful actresses
*Daily Mail, Books of the Year*

A magical love letter to Shakespeare
*Kenneth Branagh*

A wonderful mixture of appreciation and anecdote
*Financial Times, Books of the Year*

It’s a mark of Dench’s impish genius and O’Hea’s deftness that it genuinely feels like you’re sitting at her kitchen table with her. It’s companionable and compelling – if you love Judi Dench or Shakespeare (and most of us do), look no further

Gorgeous flows of recollection
*Literary Review*

An utterly delightful book…there can be few higher pleasures in civilised life than hearing Judi Dench recite the poetry of Shakespeare. What emerges is a wealth of unpretentious horse sense – Shakespeare from a great actor’s perspective – that repeatedly strikes to the heart of the matter with a sharp instinctive intelligence that puts fancy-pants literary critics to shame

This is a gloriously entertaining tour through the canon in the company of perhaps the most experienced living Shakespearean actor; reading it feels like a chat with an old friend.

The book is pure enchantment. It swirls and dances with brilliance and mischief, so forget traditional Shakespearean criticism and analysis. Sack the Eng. Lit. professors. As never before, this book brings the subject to wild, authentic life.
*Daily Mail*

A wonderful ode to the bard

Riveting, revealing and witty
*Gazette and Herald*
