Books by Eleanor Berry



Sixty Funny Stories




Sixty Funny Stories

Autobiographical stories, anecdotes and hilarious recollections from a highly eventful life. Eleanor Berry recalls her childhood, her association with the rich and famous, including the late Robert Maxwell, and how her impish and rebellious character has always got her into trouble. We learn of her family, her travels abroad, how she taught herself Russian, her sympathies for the communist cause (soon dashed), her experiences with doctors and therapists, and even her courtroom ordeal as a chief prosecution witness. At turns laugh-out-loud funny, reflective, incisive and outrageous, this collection will delight all readers with a good understanding of the sadness and joy of life.

"This book is a laugh a line"


- Elisa Seagrave, diarist & writer
