  1. Debbie Barham My guess would be that very few people have heard of this young lady who died at a tragically young age, unless of course you are or were in the comedy business before she died The reason is that she wasn t someone like the comedians you see on TV, who just tell the audience the jokes which they have written out before them, she was one of those people behind the screen The unsung heroes The ones who actually write the jokes that we all laugh at when they are told by the people lik [...]


  2. Very interesting and compulsive read, a tragic story one that I m not convinced the subject would want the world to know The writing style was clunky and repetitive and a lot of the book was taken up by Debbie s personal emails etc I did enjoy it, however there should be trigger warnings for those suffering from similar issues.


  3. A bit slow due to lots of information and detail regarding Deb s career However the detail did assist in getting to know the complexity of her state of mind, so it was somewhat necessary


  4. This is the story of a gifted writer that led an extraordinary life died too young due to anorexia Her name may not have been famous, but most of us have probably heard some of Debby Barham s work, not realizing that it was the work of a child living in an adult s world.If one reads this book, they would realize that anorexia is not a disease to be trifled with, or trivialized Too many books regarding eating disorders are used as guide manuals Prominent cheekbones or collarbones may be considere [...]


  5. A book which enlightened me on how people who suffer from anorexia think and how they cover up their illness or play it down This book is written by the father of an anorexic comedy genius who lived to work I couldn t read it in a couple of sittings it didn t interest me that much but I read a bit now and again.


  6. Not a great insight on what it s like to be the parent of someone so ill, which is a shame No insight either into the daughter s life on a deeper level Possibly not surprising, given the distance of the relationship Mentions of weights and Debbie s high functioning achievements throughout her illness, which could be triggering.


  7. not a bad read shows the way that anorexia takes over ones life and how hard it is to get away from its strong hold The father s narrative kinda has me questioning on his responses during the whole episode, and his motives for actually writing it


  8. It is problematic that the author and the subjects father seems to repeatedly and all too enthusiastically read damnation of his ex wife into his daughter s work It would have been nice if the focus was on his interesting, hilarious and troubled daughter instead of scoring points on his ex.


  9. Have no idea how I ended up with this book as its not normally my kind of thing but I m glad I did It opened up my eyes to how much lying a person can and will do once they are on the self destruct path of anorexia Very sad.


  10. not a bad read shows the way that anorexia takes over ones life and how hard it is to get away from its strong hold The father s narrative kinda has me questioning on his responses during the whole episode, and his motives for actually writing it


  11. this book s movinge author may not be the best father you could find, but in the book, he shows that he trys to be the bestthough debbie died in the end, but the memories between them will never be lost.


  12. I had never heard of Deborah Barham until I read this book I came across this book in a charity shop and so glad that I decided to purchase What wonderful talent Deborah had, but how sad that she could not beat her anorexia Recommended.


  13. A fascinating biography about a 15 year old girl who left home to quickly become one of Britain s most successful and popular comedy writers, only to die of anorexia just a handful of years later It s a tragedy, but this account of her secretive life is hard to put down.


  14. poignant in places but an insight into the complexities faced by people suffering from eating disorders and their families and friends.



  15. Great read by a father who tried so hard to save his fabulous comedic genius of a daughter, who was a clever anorexic and sadly couldn t fight thei illness






  16. A very moving story and an eye opener to the horror of anorexia the suffering of the victim and those that love them.
