  • Get to know a national icon in Eddie Izzard's hilarious and dazzling autobiography

    'Comic genius . . . Entertainment incarnate' Telegraph
    ______

    Star of stage and screen. Tireless supporter of charity. Marathon runner. Political campaigner.
    Fashion icon. Human.

    There is no one quite like Eddie Izzard. This is the story of how she broke through.

    Her relentless optimism has led her to always do things her own way, even if it didn't work the first time, and her incredible self-belief has pushed her to keep on trying, even if it didn't work the second or third time either.

    Whether she was putting on teddy bear shows on boarding school beds or swordfighting on the streets of London, Eddie never stopped trying to achieve her dreams of becoming a performer.

    Brimming with her distinctively surreal humour and disarming candour, Believe Me tells the story of a person who never took no for an answer.
