    1. Collection of B.B.'s London Evening Standard columns from the 80's - 90's. Light reading but lots of smiles. Bainbridge tackles big subjects sometimes but mostly revels in the typical English small things: gardening, getting kicked out of pubs, fighting the local authorities over dog poo on the sidewalk.


    2. I'd really liked her novella Injury Time, so decided to get this collection of essays from the library. Though she's a noted author, and many of the entries contain references to hob-nobbing with celebs, Bainbridge remains consistently down-to-earth, and usually quite funny - she definitely had the Anglo gene for irony!


    3. If you've never read Bainbridge, don't read this first. It's a delight, of course, so you must read it. But read it after you've read a few of her novels. I think you'll appreciate it more.
