A year in the life of Clarissa Dickson Wright. Plenty of tales and anecdotes to keep all fans happy, she is an entertaining writer who tells it as it is. A very enjoyable read.

A message from Joanna Lumley:

“Anything that makes reading easier is to be applauded – a bright light, a quiet room, large clear print…what could be more enticing. Focus has all my support." Joanna Lumley

Synopsis

Rifling Through My Drawers - Large Print Edition by Clarissa Dickson Wright

This publication is not for sale to libraries. With her inimitable wit and outspoken views, Clarissa Dickson Wright opens her diary and takes us on a journey around Britain with this unrivalled collection of stories and anecdotes from her ever-eventful life. As celebrated cook and champion of the countryside, Clarissa's year includes being propositioned by a burly greyhound courser, meeting the Chairman of the Sandringham branch of the WI, a fishing terrier called Kipper and taking on the Health & Safety officials at a rain-drenched County Show. Criss-crossing the country she introduces us to long-forgotten traditions and colourful local festivals as she meets up with extraordinary characters and friends old and new. Entertaining, poignant, but never politically correct, Rifling Through My Drawers is a breath of fresh air and proves once again why Clarissa is one of the nation's true treasures.
