‘I just sat down and read it straight through and cried. Dreadfully funny and incredibly touching’ Joanna Lumley ‘Moving, funny, enchanting. A beautiful, original portrayal of family life’ Sheila Hancock ‘Something quite splendid, new and unforgettable’ Stephen Fry ‘Wonderful, warm, witty and wise. Just like the author’ Ben Elton ‘The book is as extraordinary as the woman who wrote it. The correspondence started with the odd note on the kitchen table reminding Granny Annie of a doctor's appointment or that there was ham in the fridge, but built into more…quite extraordinary. On one level, it's a humorous work about hearing aids and incontinent dogs…On another, it's an uplifting story of family love and duty, and generational conflict’ Daily Mail ‘One of the most pleasurably giddy reads I've had for ages, it's laugh-out-loud funny as well as deeply poignant’ Scotsman
