‘The book is filled with that most distinctive of all her qualities: her voice’ The Times

Home Work, the second instalment of Julie Andrews’ internationally bestselling memoirs, begins with her arrival in Hollywood to make her screen debut in Walt Disney’s Mary Poppins. It was closely followed by The Sound of Music, and the beginning of a movie career that would make her an icon to millions all over the world.

With her trademark charm and candour, Julie reveals behind-the-scenes details and reflections on her impressive body of work – from the incredible highs to the challenging lows. She shares her professional experiences and collaborations with giants of cinema and television, and also unveils her personal story of adjusting to a new and often daunting world. This included dealing with unimaginable public scrutiny, being a new mother, embracing two stepchildren, adopting two more children, and falling in love with the brilliant and mercurial Blake Edwards. The pair worked together in numerous films, including 10, S.O.B and Victor/Victoria.

Home Work takes us on a rare and intimate journey into a remarkable life that is funny, heart-breaking and inspiring.

Reviews

Home Work is written with a warm heart and a generous spirit . . . an honest attempt to make sense of an often chaotic life
Charlotte Heathcote, Sunday Express
An enjoyable glide through Andrews' stellar career
Pat Fitzpatrick, Irish Examiner
With typical candour and a storyteller's skill . . . Julie Andrews is a reliable narrator and an entertaining guide through a second memoir that brings her career from Marry Poppins to Victor/Victoria (1982)
Donal O'Donoghue, RTE Guide
Andrews's tone is measured but realistic. The book is filled with that most distinctive of all her qualities: her voice. For many, hearing the struggles with domestic despair will be life finding a tender hand in the dark. Her honesty is not self-indulgent. There's a sense that she wants to give comfort to those whose domestic lives are also filled with struggle. As such, Mary Poppins may appear only briefly here, but her spirit is alive and well
