Publisher's Summary

'Birkin's diary entries ultimately expose the toxic reality behind one of the 20th century's most glamorous couples' Sunday Times

Jane Birkin - actor, singer, songwriter and model - may have shot to worldwide fame through her relationship with Serge Gainsbourg and their controversial hit 'Je t'aime ... moi non plus', but it would be her wide-ranging acting career and effortless Gallic cool that was to truly cement her legacy as an enduring international icon.

In Munkey Diaries, the first volume of Birkin's diaries, we're transported to the flamboyant world of London in the Swinging Sixties and Saint-Germain-des-Prés in the 1970s. There are intimate revelations about Jane's tumultuous life with her first husband, the composer John Barry, and her romantic and professional collaboration with Gainsbourg, as well as keen insights into her working life as an actor, singer and songwriter.

Far from an ordinary memoir, Munkey Diaries offers a unique window into the early life and loves of an extraordinary woman.
