The Elsie Drake Letters

Elsie Drake

'I laughed till I cried' DAISY MAY COOPER
'I howled with laughter' MATT LUCAS

Mrs Elsie Drake is the sixth oldest woman in Britain. But fed up sitting in her armchair all day, she is ready for new life adventures. So armed with a computer that she can barely operate, she fires off dozens of letters to everyone from the Prime Minister to Greggs Bakeries, to offer them her help.

Whether offering her services as the new Arsenal mascot, or simply sending Sainsburys a load of meat, no one can quite escape her clutches.

Ridiculously silly, and gloriously funny, The Elsie Drake Letters is a testament to the great kindness and good humour of the British public.

Because of course they all write back...
