Daily Mail||'Deliciously rude, scandalously funny and crammed with quite interesting bits'
John Lloyd||'This diplomat's wife reveals the riotous truth about their perilous postings'
Mail on Sunday||'Denman's accuracy and effusive wit . . . had me cheering out loud'
The Times||'I can honestly say it's funniest book that I've read for a long time . . . Cherry has obviously revelled in her life abroad, diplomatic or not. Read the book and enjoy'
