How Many Camels Are There in Holland?: Dementia, Ma and Me

The charming, funny successor to the hugely popular ‘Notes to my Mother-in-Law’, from the inimitable Phyllida Law.

When her Uncle Arthur dies, actress Phyllida Law returns to the tiny Scottish village of Ardentinny to look after her ma, Mego. Mego’s always been deliciously dotty. She once put a new packet of tights in the fridge (and the bacon in her sock drawer). But Mego’s older now and becoming ever more muddled.

So Phyllida devotes herself to looking after Mego, but not without the help of friends, local villagers, and her two daughters, actresses Emma and Sophie Thompson: pulling together, they maintain order in the cottage, find Delia on the telly and keep Mego’s spirits up-with a G&T if all else fails. Somehow, Phyllida even manages to slip away on acting jaunts in Glasgow and Italy.

Running through Phyllida’s account of Mego’s final months are the anecdotes, memories and legends that form the fabric of every family. Phyllida’s account captures the warmth and tenderness of two generations of daughters brought together to care for their much-loved mother and grandmother.
