Review of Where Have I Gone? - Pauline Quirke by xd-o-n-z-x

Advantages: interesting, easy reading, nice lady
Disadvantages: none

I would never have considered myself a fan of Pauline Quirke. I remember her from Birds of a Feather, when I was growing up, but that was about it. However, I do love reading autobiographies, even those of ones I am not fans of. So when I saw this book in ... Read review
