Praise for Imogen

Jilly is about bringing joy into your life: daft, silly, boozy joy . . . There is no one else like Cooper.


[Jilly Cooper has a] near-magical ability to conjure up a world and populate it with people for whom you feel a deep affection.


Jilly has given more pleasure to more girls and women than anyone else alive today... [with her] familiar warmth and irrepressible humour.

The Lady

Classic Cooper: either the perfect beach read or else something to curl up on the sofa with to keep out the encroaching autumn chill.

Sunday Express

Jilly Cooper is a national treasure.

Country Life

Her comedies of manners rival Nancy Mitford, if not Jane Austen.
