Friends: Are cheaper than therapy
In the realm of amusing, deadpan greetings cards, Cath Tate is the original and best. In her thirty-year career she has created thousands of witty, original and often subversive cards, featuring grim-faced old ladies, ludicrously dressed 1920s gentlemen and bizarre-looking children, paired with text that perfectly captures her highly individual and devastatingly funny view on the world. This hilarious book - a perfect gift for a beloved friend - brings together the best of Cath's work on friendship. Whimsical, scurrilous and - very occasionally - tender, it is packed with insights into today's modern friendships, from belligerent bookclubs to over-enthusiastic drama queens to ridiculous hen parties. After all, as Cath says, 'A friend is someone who likes you even though they know you.' Word count: 2,000
