Publisher's Summary

When Harry Met Sheila is the story of highly-acclaimed comedy actress Sheila Steafel, her relationship with Steptoe and son actor Harry H. Corbett, and how a woman - who should have had the world at her feet - ultimately destroyed her marriage and promising career.

Sheila's autobiography is a brave and honest account by an actress who was once crowned "The Queen of Comedy", in which she explores how the traumas of her childhood - growing up in a dysfunctional family in apartheid-torn South Africa in the 1930s and '40s - have impacted her personal life and career.

This audiobook also provides a fascinating insight into the world of the entertainment industry and shows how easy it is for the dreams and aspirations of those in the business to fall by the wayside. It will appeal to anyone interested in the human condition and demonstrates the huge impact that childhood experiences have on our adult lives.

When Harry Met Sheila is a powerful story about one woman's journey of self-discovery and her struggle to finally let go of the demons of the past.

    I live in rural France with my husband and cats. We both love audio books as they get us through the dreariest jobs, like weeding and diggin

    "How very sad"

    It is difficult really to write a review on someone else's life story, it was interesting but.... for me very sad. I remember Sheila Steafel as a very funny comedic actress, and like so many other comedian/nes her life is full of hard to believe injustices. I was left feeling very empty for her, because the one person she really loved she lost.. not entirely her fault, as I wasn't smitten with Harry H, what a control freak... Anyway it wasn't a pleasant story and I hope she is happier now.
