Praise for `How Many Camels Are There in Holland?': `Handling delicate material with a clear head and a loving heart, Law manages to turn the stuff of tragedies into the most delicate of comedies ... Law's technique ought to be studied on writing courses.' Daily Telegraph `I doubted that I could ever read anything that would make me smile gently at the tragic reality of caring for a beloved family member who slips away before your eyes becoming a stranger. Yet Phyllida Law has provided such a book ...' BOOK OF THE WEEK, Daily Mail `Phyllida Law has a delightfully natural style, a gift for anecdote and the knack of seeing the funny side of pretty much everything. Someone so accomplished could write a book about their weekly trip to the supermarket and make it highly amusing ... funny, brave and heartening.' Spectator `So much merriment courses through Phyllida Law's account of looking after her mother ... Many of their exchanges belong in an Alan Bennett play.' Daily Telegraph Praise for `Notes to My Mother-in-Law': `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
