Description

Having no empathy or any sort of kindness, or understanding (even in retrospect) for the boy whom she met through a chat room, who had not told her about his disability, and then whom she did not speak to for the entire weekend he stayed (parents really, he slept in her room? I have lived the most humiliating, ridiculous, screw-up of a life but Mum was right, you've just got to remember, sometimes the worst experiences make the most entertaining stories.

She won the BAFTA TV Award for Best Female Comedy Performance in 2018 for her role as Kerry Mucklowe in the BBC Three series This Country, a mockumentary-style show about the eccentricities of life in rural England, which she co-created and co-wrote with her brother, Charlie Cooper. Even when things really do go their way and This Country finally gets commissioned to be made, it’s almost a cursory mention at the end and that’s it. This audio version also has the added bonus of an exclusive interview with Daisy and her father Paul. Daisy narrates the story really well and does lots of funny voices, and she slightly goes of piste into other little chats that aren't in the book.I know it's supposed to make me laugh, but I just felt so very sad for Daisy May and her family - growing up in chaos, dealing with loss and severe financial worries. She tells every story with equal humor and enthusiasm, in the unique style that we have come to know and love about her. I love This Country, and reading about her early life showed how much of it has been written into the scripts, but I almost wish I hadn't read it.

My personal highlights were the coke can incident, the one liner about Daisy's old pet hamster and his whiplash, and the whole chapter on Thaddeus Toogood - comedy gold. Life hasn't always been straightforward for Daisy May Cooper: growing up in rural poverty in Gloucestershire with her brother Chaz, she had to work a myriad of low-paid and unrewarding jobs just to make ends meet. This is a real insight into Daisy's life pre-This Country (which is an absolute banger of a show btw) and how she grew up in poverty.This audiobook is narrated by Daisy May Cooper and includes an exclusive, bonus interview with Daisy and her Dad, Paul Cooper. Together with my brother Charlie, I staggered my way through adolescence from one drama to the next until finally, after years of trying, we had This Country commissioned by the BBC.
