For nearly thirty years Annie Tempest has entertained ‘Country Life’ magazine readers with her weekly strip cartoon, Tottering-by-Gently, reaching much greater audiences worldwide through the associated merchandise, including book compilations such as this new volume on the subject of drink. A whole generation has grown up following the gentle everyday observations of this very British extended family with their dogs, daily struggles and difficulties in adapting to the fast-paced, technological and now woke world. Cheers to all! Onwards and upwards without spilling a drop.Snifters at Tottering Hall is the eagerly awaited, post-lockdown offering from Lord and Lady Tottering on the subject of liquid refreshment. It is well-timed to put a smile back on our faces after a notably unamusing confinement. Annie Tempest’s superb cartoons, depicting this delightfully eccentric couple, remind us that life must be celebrated and taken with a pinch of salt and a stiff upper lip.
