Curious is a collection of delightfully witty stories by actress, comedy writer and columnist Rebecca Front. Rebecca has always used anecdotes from her own life to inform not only the characters she plays in such series as The Thick of It and Nighty Night, but also her frequent observational comment pieces for the Guardian, Independent and other magazines. In Curious, she takes those characters further, exploring and delighting in the absurdities of life, the oddities of human nature. Rebecca's acutely observed, refreshingly honest and deliciously funny take on contemporary life will delight her fans and win her many new ones.
