The funny, wise and brilliant new novel from the star of QI and the author of Between the Stops

After much searching, Amber and Stevie find the perfect house - a bit shabby but with potential - in Grimaldi Square. Just the two of them; a place where they can start their lives together. Recently married, they want to begin a family (with the help of their gay best friend, Jack). Despite the rundown pub across the way, the overgrown garden and a decidedly nosy neighbour, it's the house of their dreams.

But they are not alone in this dream.

Upstairs, squatting on an old red sofa, is the former owner - eighty-year-old foul-mouthed, straight-talking, wise-cracking Dorothy - and she's not going anywhere.

A story close to Sandi Toksvig's heart, Friends of Dorothy is a wonderful, funny, touching novel about making a family that is not biological, but logical.
