Daisy May Cooper’s Autobiography ‘Don’t Laugh It Will Only Encourage Her’…. Takes us from her humble beginnings of growing up in Cirencester to the launch of ‘This Country’ through the BBC. At times you literally laugh out loud at her shenanigans and others you almost want to cry at her struggle to get where she is today. Daisy’s ‘embarrassing’, yet supportive parents feature a lot and her love for brother Charlie is unwavering. Her brutal honesty at times is cringeworthy as she recalls some rather unsavoury situations in her journey to success. The pictures and illustrations in her book are eye opening, but I would also recommend buying the audio version so you can hear Daisy tell her story in her own words.
