"In her second volume of autobiography Joyce Grenfell leads the reader through a range of pleasant places, some new, some familiar.  While much of it is linked to her professional career, her duties and pleasures have been more varied than one might expect.  It begins on Broadway, where she had her own solo show, and shared (in tiara and order ribbon) a T.V. slot with Elvis.  It takes in performances in Australia, Canada, and in small English theatres up and down the country, and culminates in her own command performance for the Queen and her guests at Windsor."
