–People “Painfully shrewd, and written with real delicacy and pathos.”


–The New York Times Book Review “Home reflects the very qualities that first made the working-class English singer a star 45 years ago: intelligence, gentle humor, and a clear, sweet, surprisingly powerful voice . . . In warmly nostalgic later chapters, the book begins to glow.”


–Entertainment Weekly “A delightful remembrance of her own childhood, and an engrossing prelude to her cinematic career . . . Andrews is an accomplished writer who holds back nothing while adding a patina of poetry to the antics and anecdotes throughout this memoir of bittersweet backstage encounters and theatrical triumphs.”


–Publishers Weekly (starred review) “Frank and fascinating . . . Andrews comes across as plainspoken, guilelessly charming and resoundingly tough.”
