In her famous weekly Guardian column, Michele created a comic masterpiece of family life. Over fourteen years she chronicled the teenage years of her daughter, Treasure, and the final years of her mother. The Age of Dissent, Treasure: the Trials of a Teenage Terror, and its sequel, What Treasure did Next, based on the Guardian columns, were published by Virago, serialised on Radio 4 and made into a BBC cartoon series. Michele regularly appears on radio and TV, most recently as one of the Grumpy Old Women. She lives in north London, these days mostly on her own with her Boxer dog. She is delighted with the solitude and still writes a weekly column for the Guardian.
