Fascinated with Gearóid Farrelly Ep 57: Queen Victoria with Jasper Rees
Jasper Rees is the author of "Let's Do It" the authorised biography of Victoria Wood. The book was written with the consent of Victoria's children following her death in 2016.
Jasper wrote the book by listening to audio recordings mad by Wood herself in preparation to write a memoir. "Let's Do It" has just been published in paperback and is a must read for any Victoria Wood fan. The book was described by the guardian as "a brilliant tribute while also – somehow, almost – bringing Victoria Wood back to life in all her complicated glory".
This interview was recorded live at the Cat Laughs Podcast Festival in Kilkenny in December 2020.
