Review Text

Not content with writing some of television's best comedy, and delivering hours of brilliant standup, the disgracefully prolific Mr Elton also writes damned entertaining books. I've read and enjoyed 'em all, but I have a soft spot for this one because it involves Hampstead - where I live - experiencing total traffic seizure. Just like every morning during my school run. (Kirkus UK)
