Following Phyllida Law's wonderful and acclaimedNOTES TO MY MOTHER-IN-LAW - - which comically and tenderly documented the author's relationship with her husband's mother who lived with the family for 17 years - we now have a chronicle of Phyllida's relationship with her own mother who suffered from dementia. Recently widowed, bringing up her own two daughters (actresses Emma and Sophie Thompson) and working as a successful actress herself, Phyllida went up and down to Scotland to spend as much time with her ailing mother as she could manage. During the period she kept a lively and frank journal noting many of the sad yet funny examples of her mother's faltering grip on reality. The journal includes reminiscences of her own childhood and the tragic death of her only brother.This book promises to be just as warm and moving as her first and will also be beautifully enhanced by the author's illustrations.
