    Our favourite Jeremy Strong Book Quotes
    “‘That’s the one!’ she cried. ‘That’s the bottom I’m after. Darling you have the most gorgeous bottom!’” (My Brother’s Famous Bottom)

    “Streaker can out accelerate a torpedo. She can do 0 to 100mph in the blink of an eye. She’s usually vanished over the far horizon long before you have time to yell – ‘Streaker!’” (The Hundred-Mile-An-Hour Dog)

    “Parents are lovely, aren’t they? There you are on your death bed and all they can think about is money. I could have been choking my way to heaven!” (Beware! Killer Tomatoes)
