The wickedly funny sequel to the MI5 and Me, described by Tatler as 'a stone cold comic classic', following the irrepressible Lottie's adventures in 1950s London

London in the 1950s. Lottie is a reluctant typist at MI5 and the even more reluctant daughter of the organisation's most illustrious spy. Now she has had the bad luck to fall in love with Harry, a handsome if frustrated young actor, who has also been press-ganged into the family business, acting as one of her father's undercover agents in the Communist hotbed of British theatre.

Together the two young lovers embark on a star-studded adventure through the glittering world of theatre - but, between missing files, disapproving parents, and their own burgeoning creative endeavours, life is about to become very complicated indeed...

Review:

The great joy of Bingham's prose is its youthful insouciance. She writes like a teenager, but an exceptionally observant one (Lynn Barber Spectator)

Enormous fun ... Dazzling (Sunday Express)

Wickedly funny (Country Life)

Flamboyance is the keynote. I loved it (Daily Mail, Book of the Week)

She has a keen eye . Bingham concentrates on amusing asides and scraps of dialogue, and the jokes carry the story blithely along . Its self-deprecatory portrait of a girl adrift is engaging, and it captures well the chance encounters that are often part of growing up (Lindsay Duguid Times Literary Supplement)

Praise for MI5 and Me: 'Astonishing ... She still has all the exuberant delight of a teenager in telling stories to make herself and other people laugh. Long may she write (Lynn Barber Sunday Times)

The sort of light, frothy book that makes your laugh out loud on public transport (Daily Mail, Books of the Summer 2018)

Hilarious and candid . Filled with period detail, Bingham's memoir is entertaining and extraordinary (Hannah Beckerman Observer)

A fun and breezy read (Observer, Best summer books 2018)

A Jilly Cooper heroine in a John le Carré world (Libby Purves Times Literary Supplement)
