Publisher's Summary

Taken from the third successful BBC Radio 4 series starring Patricia Routledge and Prunella Scales, these episodes see a trembling in cyberspace as Vera and Irene discover the joys of e-mail. There are the usual domestic mishaps to fret about: Irene's daughter Lesley is refusing to marry the worthy but boring Brian; Vera's exhausted daughter Karen has abandoned her third baby at the hospital and eloped with a male nurse; and Vera's gay son Howard and his partner Anthony are trying for a baby, with the help of a surrogate mother and a television crew. As Irene and Vera fall in and out of friendship they accuse each other of everything from alcoholism to metal illness (in a loving, caring way, of course). Their hilarious put-downs and gossip give a wonderful insight into the trials of modern family life.

Brilliant best of British

What other book might you compare Ladies of Letters.com to and why?

Touch of the humour of Jane Austen with all the wit.

Have you listened to any of Prunella Scales and Patricia Routledge ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Mrs Fawlty and Hyancyinth.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh till you wet yourself. A little tear at one point.

Engaging

Prunella Scales and Patricia Routledge are soooo good! The plot of other characters are a little disappointing. I love the combination of the superb talents of Scales and Routledge but haven't been thrilled by the storyline. It was still a worthy listen.

A Great Series

This series has been consistently funny. With two of the greatest British actresses in it, the quality of the production is fabulous. Highly recommended
