The woman who shot to fame as one half of the cookery double act - the Two Fat Ladies
Clarissa Dickson Wright has led a rich and varied life - the daughter of an Australian heiress and a brilliant surgeon, she travelled the world and became the youngest woman ever to be called to the Bar. But her life was marred by domestic violence and when her mother died she began, numbed by grief, to drink away her inheritance. She joins Ritula to talk about her new autobiography and the incredible highs and lows of her life.
