Home: A Memoir of My Early Years by Julie Andrews. Mom has always been a big fan, and since she doesn't really bother with the nonfiction section, I knew she would not have picked it up on her own. I remember hearing Dame Julie on her book tour, probably on Fresh Air, recounting some of her experiences in London during the war and on vaudeville tours around England. It sounded like something that would appeal to both Mom and Dad. She seemed really pleased.
So, you know, I kicked birthday ass this year.
