Publishers Description: In this much-awaited memoir, Kate Fitzpatrick, darling of the Australian stage and screen, reflects upon a lifetime of knowing and loving some of Australia's, and indeed the world's, most famous and controversial identities. With a delightful mix of humour, name-dropping and self-deprecation, Kate Fitzpatrick reveals the twists and turns of a life that has seen her become a respected actress, writer and speech writer, and a not-so-respected cricket commentator. In these candid confessions we are led through Kate's life, from her early childhood in Adelaide to leaving her eccentric, warm family to enrol at NIDA. Kate rapidly became much in demand as an actor, and her critically acclaimed work, together with her razor-sharp wit and eye for detail, ensured that her profile soared. Her myth-making friendship with Patrick White is laid bare, along with her personal relationships with some of the world's most sought-after men. this book is by turns hilarious, turbulent, painfully truthful and self-deprecating, and is an unashamed look at slices of Kate's colourful and brilliant, careers, loves and lives Namedropping is a high-spirited memoir teeming with fascinating snippets and insights into other people and places.
