According to yes by Dawn French( Book )

The Foreign Land of the Very Wealthy - otherwise known as Manhattan's Upper East Side - has its own rigid code of behaviour. It's a code strictly adhered to by the Wilder-Bingham family. Emotional displays - unacceptable. Unruly behaviour - definitely not welcome. Fun - no thanks. This is Glenn Wilder-Bingham's kingdom. A beautifully-displayed impeccably-edited fortress of restraint. So when Rosie Kitto, an eccentric thirty-eight-year-old primary school teacher from England, bounces into their lives with a secret sorrow and a heart as big as the city, nobody realises that she hasn't read the rule book. For the Wilder-Bingham family, whose lives begin to unravel thread by thread, the consequences are explosive. Because after a lifetime of saying no, what happens when everyone starts saying yes?

Victoria Coren Mitchell interviews Dawn French, Olivia Colman, Sarah Millican and Germaine Greer in this four-part BBC Radio 4 series. In these four episodes, presenter Victoria Coren Mitchell and guests discuss their lives as seen through the prism of the cars they have known, the journeys they've been on and the things they keep in their boot for emergencies. As they share their four-wheeled highlights, they take a light-hearted look at life, love, sex, work, childhood, adulthood and adventure. Dawn French reveals what she wrote on the back of her first car; Olivia Colman tells us the nickname of her beloved Morris Minor; Sarah Millican describes a traffic jam that led to some desperate measures; and Germaine Greer talks about Australia's own car, the mighty Holden.
