Everybody must go out and buy this book! Francesca McMahon is definitely one to watch. In turns tear jerkingly painful and laugh out loud funny, this darkly comic debut will have you on an emotional roller coaster.
I was hooked by the end of the first paragraph and by the end of the first chapter, I felt as though I knew the protagonist, Sue, who likes to read novels when she should be scrubbing the bath. Exquisitely observed with finely drawn characters, this book is a rare treat - a story about 'everywoman' yet anything but dull.
I eagerly await the next one!
