About this deal

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. 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. Some great heartbreaking moments of how Daisy overcame class adversity and poverty tied with the surreal and ridiculous moments of tragedy that you can only find humour in.

please don't start reading this book expecting it to be a laugh a minute, because you'll be bitterly disappointed. This book starts off amazing and until about 3/4 of the way through stays consistently funny (I’m still thinking about that showcase in under the pub) but I can’t help but feel the last few chapters were really rushed!I can’t wait to see what Daisy does next, but in the meantime I’ll carry on rewatching This Country and scrolling through her Instagram feed.

She recently starred in Armando Iannucci's The Personal History of David Copperfield, and has featured on TV shows including Avenue 5, Doc Martin and The Wrong Mans. I didn't think it was necessary to have those parts because there were proper photos in 2 sections of the book. It made me laugh out loud and at times it was heart breaking to read about the financial situation the family was in and the poverty they endured.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 expect hearing the author telling the stories would be very different, but reading them on a page left me desperately sorry that she and her family had been through so much. Also some of the photocopied pages of old school stories and notes and stuff I couldn't read them the print was very small and the writing was hard to read.
