Book Review: The Tour: a memoir by Denise Scott

Actress and comedian, Denise Scott was raised in Greensborough.  This autobiography: TheTour: a memoir (a metaphor for life really) is an easy, fairly entertaining read with stories from her life including growing up in Greensborough and area. Her account of preparing for an impending bushfire as a lone young girl while her mother helps the residents of the aged care facility across the road is actually quite heart wrenching.  The book reveals some surprising family secrets. She is certainly not afraid to “put it out there” at times.  She certainly wanted to (and continues) to live life at its fullest. If you enjoy contemporary memoirs with a local flavour this one is for you.
