Belinda wistfully reflects how much better at sex she is now than when she was in her twenties. A lover would be nice but she'd never be unfaithful to her husband, Tom. So when she finds out he's having an affair, she's more than angry. The seven days following her discovery see her through a rollercoaster of highs and mostly lows. And what about Tom, and his lover Meg? It's not easy for them either. Alongside this knot of middle-aged lovers is a tangle of teenage ones, as Belinda's flirty daughter Chloe tries to set up Jack with shy Alice, without realizing that Jack is full of secret longings for her. Each character faces their own personal dramas, unaware of the troubles that engulf those around them. Nicholson casts an unflinching eye on men's attitude to sex, on how women feel, on love and family life. This is our won familiar world rendered pacy, funny, emotionally on the button and hugely entertaining.--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
