Lynne Truss's six best books

Lynne Truss is the author of Eats, Shoots & Leaves, Cat Out of Hell, the newly released The Lunar Cats, and other books. One of her six best books, as shared at the Daily Express:
COLD COMFORT FARM by Stella Gibbons

A parody of rural tragedies by the likes of Hardy and Lawrence that is so funny. The main character has no time for maudlin mincing about so she enters the novels and sorts people out. It’s very clever.
Read about the other books on the list.

Cold Comfort Farm is among Duncan Minshull's top ten walks in books, Henry Alford's six favorite books, Belinda McKeon top ten farming novels, John Mullan's ten best parodies in literature, and Lisa Armstrong's top books on shoes.
