Popular broadcaster, comedian, actor and best-selling author, Jenny Eclair is one of only two female winners of the prestigious Perrier Award, and often features on BBC radio and television, best known for her roles in Grumpy Old Women and Loose Women. Her fifth novel Inheritance deals with a premature death and the tremors it sends through generations of the Cornish Carmichael family. Told with the author’s inimitable wit and observational and –at times -dark humour, it’s a poignant examination of filial secrets, unspoken tragedy and domestic turmoil with healthy dollops of both chuckles and tears. 

The Great British Bake Off star baker aptly describes her new novel, Inheritance, as:

“A fruitcake of a book, a cosy reading experience where you just get stuck in and want another chapter and then another chapter. I love a good Aga-saga”.
