Publisher's Summary

With her inimitable wit, treasury of tales and outspoken views, Clarissa Dickson Wright opens her diary and takes us on a journey around Britain and her life. As celebrated cook and champion of the countryside, Clarissa recalls episodes from her life and describes her encounters with everyone from local farmers to Women's Institutes, supermarket managers to greyhound coursers. A lover of local traditions, she has attended events from the Whitstable Oyster Festival to the Hungerford Hochtide. In a world of political correctness, Rifling Through My Drawers is a breath of fresh air and proves once again why Clarissa is one of the nation's true treasures.

I had high hopes for this book having loved her book "Spilling the beans" which I strongly recommend. I found this book to be boring and rambling in parts. It was disjointed, far too self indulgently preaching about country sports and a huge disappointment to me. Choose something else!
