Review:

"Frighteningly hilarious" -- DAWN FRENCH "An invigorating, warm-hearted and often hysterial read ... Brilliant" * Time Out * "I love her writing" -- JON RONSON "Offers all you could ask for in terms of lovingly remembered period details, comical pratfalls and well-justified swearing" * Daily Mail * "Jaw achingly funny from cover to cover ... it will strike a chord with seasoned campers everywhere" * Caravan, Motorhome and Camping Mart *
