‘Part confession, part call to arms and wholly entertaining’ OBSERVER

‘Her writing style is as kooky and digestible as Bill Bryson’s . . . A fun-filled, fact-packed, memorable ride’ SUNDAY TIMES

‘Full of wit and wisdom’ RADIO TIMES

Between the Stops is a sort of a memoir, my sort. It’s about a bus trip really, because it’s my view from the Number 12 bus.

From a brief history of lady gangsters at Elephant and Castle to anecdotes about boarding school, this is the long-awaited memoir from one of Britain’s best-loved characters. Presenter of QI, former host of The Great British Bake Off, writer, broadcaster, activist and comic on stage, screen and radio for nearly forty years: this is an autobiography with a difference – as only Sandi Toksvig can tell it.

A funny and moving trip through memories, musings and the many delights on the number 12 route, Between the Stops is also an inspiration to us all to get off our phones, look up and talk to each other because as Sandi says: ‘some of the greatest trips lie on our own doorstep’.
