The definitive biography of one of Australia's best loved stars of stage and screen, the fabulous and inimitable Jeanne Little.
The unmistakeable and inimitable Jeanne Little she of the amazing eyelashes and fabulous, if somewhat startling, dress sense (remember the green garbage bag frock?) is one of Australia's most loved and best known show business celebrities.
A zany comedian with the voice of a truck driver, Jeanne got her start as a guest on the 'Mike Walsh Show' in 1974 and never looked back. For over a decade she was the queen of Australian daytime television and beyond. With her distinctive presence, off-beat humour and flair for the innovative and unusual, Jeanne Little is an extraordinary woman. From Gold Logies to the Order of Australia to the hearts of Australian television and cabaret audiences alike, Jeanne wins them all. There's no one else quite like her.
Here for the first time, along with revealing accounts of what really went on behind the craziness of Jeanne's seemingly accidental success, is the story of her remarkable childhood and her sometimes turbulent, often controversial but never dull life. Hilarious, heart-warming and moving, with dollops of Jeanne's own unique glamour and distinctive style, this is an engrossing biography of one of the true living treasures of the Australian stage and screen.
