Publisher's Summary

Stephen Mangan and Claire Skinner star in all four series of the popular BBC Radio 4 comedy drama.
Bill works as an economist in a right-wing institute giving succour to bankers and businessmen. Bella teaches yoga, waters the plants in Canary Wharf and holds Proust seminars for retirees. Years ago they shared a flat before Bill got married and moved to America. Now he's back and feeling a little off-kilter, so he decides to rekindle his friendship with Bella.
Once a month they get together for lunch, where they talk about everything from politics to Proust, parenting and the perils of online dating. The only thing they never discuss is how much they love each other....
In Marcy Kahan's delightful "platonic romantic comedy", we join Bill and Bella as they meet, eat and disagree about everything; and over the course of four series, we learn their hopes and dreams and listen in as their lives change direction.

Hilarious and captivating!

A brilliant audiobook which keeps you entertained and unable to 'put down' as not being able to wait to hear the next 'episode'.
Great narration, great book!
Highly recommended.

Different, but entertaining

Really enjoyed this series. Stephen Mangan and Claire Skinner are old friends who get back in touch and decide to meet once a month for lunch and we get to listen to the travails of their lives. The episodes are in 15 minute chunks so are easy to listen to. As you would expect from two great actors like Mangan and Skinner the characters are interesting and you can't help but want to learn more about the two characters. Overall if you like well written character comedy then this is definitely worth your time.
