The perfect gift?,
This review is from: Notes to my Mother-in-Law (Hardcover)
In a world where It's A Wonderful Life represents the 'perfect' Christmas, this remarkable book combines whimsy, wit and charm in equal measure. For everyone who admires their elders as wiser, madder and possessing an admirable eccentricity, this book is a wonderful journey through relationships and reminiscence.
With the lightest of touches, this is a beautiful book that will resonate with anyone with a heart made of anything more malleable than tungsten. There is not a better gift for us 'old people' - eg around about 40 and above!
