October Book Group - what we read

Tuesday 9th October WOW WI book group met as usual in Loves Cafe.
Welcome new members........!
The book we discussed was the memoir of actress Sue Johnston ( Waking the Dead, Royle Family, Brookside etc) " Things I Couldn't Tell My Mother" . Overall most present found it disappointing and somewhat bland, lacking in real insight into the actress's personality  and written in a simplistic if pleasant narrative style. The title led us to expect some interesting perspectives on the  mother daughter relationship but the treatment of this was superficial . Overall not a favourite
