Reviews

Her writing style is as kooky and digestible as Bill Bryson's . . . Hop on this bus, grab a seat up top and prepare yourself for a fun-filled, fact-packed, memorable ride -- Jackie Annesley * Sunday Times *
Between the Stops is like browsing through a well-stocked museum of curiosities with a wise and kind guide; it's part celebration, part confession, part call to arms and wholly entertaining. Don't read it on the bus though - it will make you miss your stop -- Stephanie Merritt * Observer *
The comedian, broadcaster and activist uses the meandering route of the number 12 bus, winding its way from her home in Dulwich, south-east London, to the BBC headquarters at Broadcasting House, to share a series of wonderful vignettes about her life * Herald *
There are fascinating gems of London history along the way, acute observations of fellow passengers, personal asides about her marriage to psychotherapist Debbie, and the odd anecdote from the world of television. It's full of wit and wisdom * Radio Times *
History and observation mix seamlessly as she looks at life from the top deck, and she's diverting on her own life * Sunday Times *
