In Old Rage, one of Britain’s best loved actors opens up about her ninth decade. Funny, feisty, honest, Sheila Hancock makes for brilliant company as she talks about her life as a daughter, a sister, a mother, a widow, an actor, a friend and looks at a world so different from the wartime world of her childhood. And yet – despite age, despite rage – she finds there are always reasons for joy.
Sheila Hancock is one of Britain’s most highly regarded and popular actors, enjoying a careerin film, television, radio and theatre. Following the death of her husband, John Thaw, she wrote a memoir of their marriage, The Two of Us, which was a no. 1 bestseller and won the British Book Award for Author of the Year. Her memoir of her widowhood, Just Me, also a bestseller, was published in 2007.
