Prime Mimicker - Janet BrownRobson, 1986, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
The autobiography of Janet Brown. Known to millions for her brilliant impersonations of Margaret Thatcher, Barbara Woodhouse, Hilda Ogden and Esther Rantzen (among many others), Janet Brown has been making people laugh with the accuracy of her mimicry since - as a child - she tilted up her nose, stuck out her front teeth, and in Jessie Matthews' quavery soprano and incredibly polite English accent sang, 'Got to donce, Got to seeng, Got to hev my leetle fleeng'…. Prime Mimicker opens with a vividly-drawn account of Janet's happy childhood in Rutherglen near Glasgow, describes her early days in show business (or serving in the Co-op), and leads eventually to her experiences as Mrs Thatcher's double. It is a warm and entertaining story. With black and white photographs.
