'Bloody funny, bloody moving - bloody buy it!' Meera Syal

Some people live life in the fast lane. Others have stalled and are waiting for assistance on the side of the road, sustained only by the piece of chewing gum they've just found in the glove compartment.

Spencer's ex-lover has died, leaving him a lizard and a list of things to do before the end of the year.

Spencer's friend Fran shares a house and a mortgage with her brother and his girlfriend, a woman with delicate wrists and a bloated cat.

Fran's neighbour Iris is slave to the three men in her life: an aging father who likes the phone and two teenage sons who cannot fathom the washing machine.

Maybe it's not about living life in the fast lane. It's about learning to live at all.

Spencer's List is a wonderfully funny tale of life lived on the edge - of reason, of failure and of (just possibly) a brighter future.
