Who the Hell Is Alice?. by Barry, Alice.;
Front Cover -- Title Page -- Copyright Page -- Dedication -- Contents -- Chapter 1: A Catholic Girl Growing up in Burnley -- Chapter 2: The Unexplainable Violence of Religion -- Chapter 3: Sexual and Mental Abuse -- Chapter 4: Prison Fodder, That's Me -- Chapter 5: Keeping My Dignity Intact -- Chapter 6: Factories and Mills -- Chapter 7: An Accident and Mental Anguish -- Chapter 8: The WAAF and Pontins -- Chapter 9: Love, Sex & Marriage… In That Order! -- Chapter 10:Cancer -- Chapter 11: Unforeseen Circumstances -- Chapter 12: A Brief Introduction to Acting -- Chapter 13: The Beginning Shameless: -- Chapter 14: Shameless Continued -- Chapter 15: Awards and Recognition -- Chapter 16: The Odd Couple -- Chapter 17: Life Today -- Chapter 18: The Future.Her face is simply unmistakable as the council house brothel madam, Lillian, in the long-running UK cult drama Shameless. By her own admission not exactly the Brigitte Bardot of the North West, Alice Barry is fiercely and unapologetically proud of her working-class roots and the many obstacles she has overcome in life and in her acting career. In her long-awaited autobiography, Alice reveals all about her early life and the almost barbaric treatment she suffered during her school years at the hands of bigoted bullies-pupils and teachers alike. One day, having been beaten for being a Catholic in the morning and a Protestant in the afternoon, she eventually fought back. It was a turning point in Alice's life. She became a rebel and beat one of the bullies so badly that they never bothered her again. This autobiography is raw and personal - warts and all. Alice's natural humor shines like a beacon, but she also shares her personal tragedies, including the shocking circumstances surrounding the death of her brother Tommy and her husband Terry. Alice is now happy again with partner Jeff, and the pair love and respect one another deeply. The only slight twist in their magical bond is that Jeff is gay and their relationship is purely a platonic one! With behind-the-scenes secrets from the set of Shameless, the TV phenomenon that has been part of Alice's life for nearly a decade; showbiz gossip; and extraordinary tales from a rollercoaster of a life; Who the Hell is Alice? is heartwrenching, hilarious and painfully honest.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.

The rapid change that climaxed with the war in Vietnam, the Cold War, civil rights demonstrations, and Watergate has forced the traditional South to come to terms with social upheaval.
