Beryl Reid

Roll Out The Beryl

On what would have been her 97th birthday, Fantom Publishing is thrilled to reveal a new biography for 2016.

With a career spanning over half a century, Beryl Reid is the subject of this new authorised biography from Kaye Crawford.

Living a fairytale existence in the picturesque Honeypot Cottage on the banks of the Thames surrounded by an army of feline friends, Beryl Reid remains one of Britain’s favourite eccentrics. But behind the smiles and the laughter, there was sacrifice and sadness which made her one of the most complex but also one of the best loved performers of her time. With contributions from friends, family, co-stars and Beryl’s very own personal archive, Roll Out the Beryl tells the true story of Beryl’s life beyond the footlights – the comedy and the tragedy which coloured the life of a British Icon.
