Friends & Crocodiles charts the unusual relationship of two very disparate people, as Britain goes through the seismic changes of the 80s and 90s. Paul Reynolds is a Gatsby-like figure: owner of a magnificent house, a host of grand parties and a collector of interesting people. He persuades Lizzie Thomas to come and work for him as his assistant to bring some order to his chaos. He inspires her with his enthusiasm and imagination, and frustrates her with his apparent carelessness and destructiveness. Their paths are destined to cross again and again as Lizzie rises through the changing landscape of corporate Britain. This is a story of a meaningful and powerful relationship.
