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.

A wealth of hilarious anecdotes and observations * <i>Unite Magazine</I> * Delightfully outrageous * <i>Scotsman</i> * The lady speaks her mind, whether it be on how literary festivals exploit authors or the idiocy of the Iraq war. The book is thus guaranteed to annoy everybody. And yet she gets away with it. The reasons are her honesty, courage and also the respect accorded to the Great British Eccentric, especially when posh. She will probably end up classified by the National Trust. * <i>The Sunday Age</i> * informative, entertaining and forthright * <i>Manchester Evening News</i> * It is amusingly unruly, with so many digressions and diversions that all the reader can do is go along for the ride and hope that by the end it all makes sense. Which it does, in a haphazard kind of way. * <i>Sydney Morning Herald</i> * Larger than life and bubbling with caustic wit, Clarissa Dickson Wright is just the person to break through the recessionary gloom and make you chuckle. * <i>Good Book Guide</i> *
