Jane knew she was a war baby because Mummy Grace said all war babies had to drink the treacly black malt from The Clinic every morning. Then Mummy Grace told Jane she wasn't her mummy. Her mummy was a lady who lived in Le Tookay. Or was it Cassablanka?

An exceptional memoir, written by one of our most outstanding actresses, Everybody's Daughter, Nobody's Child is a vivid and moving chronicle of childhood.

Jane Lapotaire has been a leading member of the National Theatre and the RSC for more than thirty years. She holds a visiting fellowship at Sussex University and teaches at the Actors' Centre and the British American Drama Academy. She lives in south London.
