«Doon Mackichan's memoir savagely exposes the sexism of showbusiness by looking at the roles she has been offered. Yet Mackichan's tome is no misery memoir [ . . . ], rather the book is an inspiring tale of an actor and comedian standing by her principles»

* Sunday Times *

«Fierce, frank and funny, this is Doon at her very best. This book demonstrates that she is, and always has been, a trailblazer»

SANDI TOKSVIG

«As we look back - and not that far - at how the misogyny was tolerated and even applauded in the 2000s, we should listen to the meticulous testimony of women like Mackichan. Because she has always called it out, but has often paid a high price»

* iPaper *

«A real page-turner; raw, urgent and entertaining»

* Daily Mail *

«A timely memoir . . . [Mackichan] has not been just an observer of change, but a driver of it. Hopefully times are changing for female comedians, but only because of the efforts of Mackichan and her generation. You can't keep a good woman doon»

* Scotsman *

«This is a fierce, frank and unfiltered account. [Mackichan] makes no secret of her fury at the way society treats women. But her readers will find that fury infectious»

* Daily Mirror *

«An articulate, whole-hearted and blazing account. Doon's been the bravest of us, someone who has consistently called out bad behaviour and unnecessary obstacles and challenged the industry to have more imagination towards women, even when doing so would cost her professionally. She's a role model to me and many others. Required reading - made me feel angrier and determined to be braver»

SALLY PHILLIPS

«A rip-roaring, brutally honest, brilliantly funny read. My Lady Parts is a triumph»

* Buzz Magazine *

«A sparkling, poetic and gloriousy witty whirl through Doon's brilliant career, with moments of deep poignancy and a bracing dose of feminist ire. Loved it!»

APRIL DE ANGELIS

«A fierce and forthright slice of Doon's life, on and off-screen. Loud, angry and funny, it'll make you rage and cry and then cheer her on»
