Don’t Ask Me!
The enigma of why SHEILA STEAFEL is attracted to BASTARDS…
RECOMMENDED READ FOR THIS MONTH
We were very sad to hear of the recent passing of the inimitable Sheila Steafel.
Sheila had been working on an updated version of her book Bastards which she had given a longer title, explaining what this humorous and engaging book is all about.
“When I read through the final draft of my autobiography, I decided to take out several anecdotes about my personal life, simply because they seemed a sort of indulgence, and didn’t add to what I wanted to say about my life and my career. They were hiccups along the way with some attacks worse than others, but all were finally ‘got rid’. I put them in a file which I called BASTARDS for my own amusement, and thought no more about them until my book came out and I was asked what my next writing project would be. For want of anything else to say I replied ‘BASTARDS’, and the response was so positive that what had started as a whim began to take on substance.
The bastards were all my own. Some were short, as are some of the tales, and some tall, which, in spite of your incredulity, none of the tales are. Well, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I couldn’t make them up! Could I?”
Don’t Ask Me! The Enigma of Why Sheila Steafel is Attracted to Bastards is a tribute to a lady who brought so much laughter and enjoyment into millions of lives.
