Enter the world of Susan Lilian Townsend - sun-worshippers, work-shy writers, garden-centre lovers and those in search of a good time all welcome. Over the last decade, Sue Townsend has written a monthly column for Sainsbury's Magazine, which covers everything from hosepipe bans and Spanish restaurants to writer's block and the posh middle-aged woman she once met who'd never heard of Winnie-the-Pooh. Collected together now for the first time, they form a set of pieces from one of Britain's most popular and acclaimed writers that is funny, perceptive and touching.

About the Author:

Sue Townsend was born in Leicester in 1946. Despite not learning to read until the age of eight, leaving school at fifteen with no qualifications and having three children by the time she was in her mid-twenties, she always found time to read widely. She also wrote secretly for twenty years. After joining a writers' group at The Phoenix Theatre, Leicester, she won a Thames Television award for her first play, Womberang, and became a professional playwright and novelist. After the publication of The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 133/4, Sue continued to make the nation laugh and prick its conscience. She wrote seven further volumes of Adrian's diaries and five other popular novels - including The Queen and I, Number Ten and The Woman Who Went to Bed for a Year - and numerous well received plays. Sue passed away in 2014 at the age of sixty-eight. She remains widely regarded as Britain's favourite comic writer.

From AudioFile:

This collection of monthly magazine columns by Sue Townsend, author of the Adrian Mole books, is (she claims) as close to a memoir as we are going to have from her. Each piece is light as foam, and not meant to last a great deal longer, and yet her accounts of her travels, her frustrations with 29 drafts of various screenplays, her travails as a smoker in a nonsmoking world, her struggle through a snowstorm to meet a newborn grandchild are tart, lighthearted, and charming, and there are worse things in a wicked world. Carolyn Oldershaw reads with exactly the right wry feel for the ridiculous. B.G. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
