------------------------------------------

Dawn French is one of the greatest comedy actresses of our time, with a career that has spanned three decades. Loved for her irreverent humour, Dawn has achieved massive mainstream success while continuing to push boundaries and challenge stereotypes. Here she describes the journey that would eventually establish her as a perhaps unlikely, but nevertheless genuine, national treasure.

Dawn began her career as part of the groundbreaking alternative comedy group, the Comic Strip, marking a radical departure from the more traditional comedy acts of the time. Later came the all-female Girls On Top, which teamed Dawn with Jennifer Saunders, Ruby Wax and Tracy Ullman and firmly established women in British comedy.

As part of the wildly successful and much loved duo French and Saunders, Dawn helped create a repetoire of brilliantly observed characters, parodying popular culture and impersonating everything from Madonna and Harry Potter to The Exorcist. Dawn's more recent role in the Vicar of Dibley showcased not only her talent but also her ability to take a controversial and topical issue and make it mainstream - and very funny.

Dear Fatty chronicles the extraordinary, hilarious rise of a complex, dynamic and unstoppable woman.

----------------------------

This special digital edition takes you on a year-long journey with Dawn, to read her honest, moving memoir, filled with photos and her very own musings about life.

Dawn has just turned 60 and she has written a diary just for you. As Dawn writes about the four seasons you'll discover more about her life. This book is about the things she knows for certain, the things she is still questioning, and the things that have happened in her past.

I can't count the amount of diaries I have crammed full with entries in January, that then fizzle out as the other months pile in. One of my teenage diaries has fulsome fizzing reports of every single conversation, thought and feeling about every friend, every crush, every meal, every argument until mid-March, when the entry on the 18th simply reads,

'Washed hair.'

Thank god, this isn't that. This book is a way for us to tell the story of a year together. Written about age and life as I see it, through the seasons and the months, and there are some places for you to join me in some fun and some thinking.
