Home Work


Julie Andrews


‘The book is filled with that most distinctive of all her qualities: her voice’ The Times

Home Work, the second instalment of Julie Andrews’ internationally bestselling memoirs, begins with her arrival in Hollywood to make her screen debut in Walt Disney’s Mary Poppins. It was closely followed by The Sound of Music, and the beginning of a movie career that would make her an icon to millions all over the world.


With her trademark charm and candour, Julie reveals behind-the-scenes details and reflections on her impressive body of work – from the incredible highs to the challenging lows. She shares her professional experiences and collaborations with giants of cinema and television, and also unveils her personal story of adjusting to a new and often daunting world. This included dealing with unimaginable public scrutiny, being a new mother, embracing two stepchildren, adopting two more children, and falling in love with the brilliant and mercurial Blake Edwards. The pair worked together in numerous films, including 10, S.O.B and Victor/Victoria.

Home Work takes us on a rare and intimate journey into a remarkable life that is funny, heart-breaking and inspiring.

Julie Andrews is one of the most recognised and beloved figures in the entertainment industry. Perhaps best known for her roles in the iconic films The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, Victor/Victoria and The Princess Diaries, her legendary career encompasses the Broadway and London stages, as well as multiple films, television shows, album releases, concert tours, directing assignments and the world of children’s publishing. Julie’s autobiography Home: A Memoir of My Early Year was an international bestseller in 2008. In 2000 the title of Dame Commander of the British Empire was bestowed upon her by Queen Elizabeth II for lifetime achievements in the arts and humanities. She was married to film director Blake Edwards for forty-one years, and the couple have five children, ten grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.
