The Queen and I

The Queen and I is the brilliantly funny novel by Sue Townsend, author of the Adrian Mole series.

THE MONARCHY HAS BEEN DISMANTLED

When a Republican party wins the General Election, their first act in power is to strip the royal family of their assets and titles and send them to live on a housing estate in the Midlands.

Exchanging Buckingham Palace for a two-bedroomed semi in Hell Close (as the locals dub it), caviar for boiled eggs, servants for a social worker named Trish, the Queen and her family learn what it means to be poor among the great unwashed. But is their breeding sufficient to allow them to rise above their changed circumstance or deep down are they really just like everyone else?

Bestselling author Sue Townsend has been Britain's favourite comic writer for over three decades.

'No other author could imagine this so graphically, demolish the institution so wittily and yet leave the family with its human dignity intact' The Times

'Absorbing, entertaining ... the funniest thing in print since Adrian Mole' Ruth Rendell, Daily Telegraph

'Kept me rolling about until the last page' Daily Mail
