Thoughts on 'Where Have I Been All My Life? A Memoir by Annette André'

Diverting from our usual topic of comics for today, I'd like to bring your attention to a book that may interest those of you who, like me, grew up during the golden age of British television. I'm sure you'll remember Annette André, a popular actress who guest starred in so many TV drama shows of the 1960s, most notably of course being a regular on Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased). Well, now Annette has written her autobiography entitled Where Have I Been All My Life? 

Published by Ouoit Media, the 270 page hardback (plus 16 page photo section) covers Annete's life and career, with anecdotes of her experiences on and off the screen. It's a fascinating book, and the author has an engaging writing style that captivates the reader, making her memoirs an enjoyable read. 

From Annette's early days with a chronic illness we see the determination emerge that set her on the path that would lead to becoming one of the most recognisable faces on television. And because she has worked with and met so many stars, including Roger Moore, Tony Curtis, Patrick McGoohan, Joan Crawford, Patrick McNee, Benny Hill, and many more, there's a lot to tell! It's a worthwhile read, and an interesting life's story well told, so I thoroughly recommend it!

You can order a copy of Where Have I Been All My Life? from the publisher's website here:

Better still, you could meet Annette and buy a signed book from her, as she'll be a guest at MCM Comic Con this weekend at the NEC, Birmingham! See here for tickets and more info:
