  Stiff Upper Lip Tuesday 29 January 2002  
What do you do when things go wrong? Do you pick yourself up and dust yourself down? Or do you pick up the phone and complain to your friends?

Novelist Kate Fenton is no fan of the talking cure or baring her soul. She joins Jenni Murray and comedian, Jo Brand to sing a hymn of praise to the Stiff Upper Lip.
Kate Fenton, Too Many Grandmothers, Flame, ISBN 0 340 76914 9, £6.99
