Product Description

She put the sex into sexagenarian... Witty, funny and full of thoughtful observations about sex and relationships, Monica Porter's 'yummy grand-mummy' memoir is the first of its kind.

As a 60-year-old writer living in London, mother and grandmother Monica Porter thinks her sex life is over when she is ditched by her partner of 13 years... until a chance encounter with a good-looking 26-year-old leads to a night of passion and kick-starts her year of dating dangerously. She discovers a world of highly sexed young men online, all eager to experience the delights an older woman has to offer.

Monica - username Raven - discovers she is thrilled to be a free agent again. But internet dating sites are the biggest, brashest, 'pick up joints' ever devised. What are the rules of this game? And can she learn to play? The men 'winking' and messaging and 'favouriting' her form an intriguing microcosm of 21st century society. But what does Raven want from it all anyway? How will it all end?

Reviews for Monica Porter’s previous books:

The Paper Bridge: A Return to Budapest
“Charming, unaffected… A sincere, essentially saddening book.” - Sunday Telegraph

“Her book was first published 30 years ago. Reissued now in a new edition, it permits another kind of travel – time travel – though its astute observations bear up well to the scrutiny of history.” - Daily Mail

“Of all the books timed to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the revolutions of 1989, The Paper Bridge may have the most charm. It is an elegant account of a visit the author made to Hungary, the land of her birth, a few years before those dramatic months when the Soviet Empire in Eastern Europe fell apart.” - Mail on Sunday

Deadly Carousel: A Singer's Story of the Second World War
“Immensely readable…with the unerring eye of a journalist Monica Porter traces every event and character.” - Jewish Chronicle

“Monica Porter’s book evokes the seesaw world of Forties Budapest – lurching from the Nazis into the arms of the Communists – with skill and sensitivity.” - Daily Telegraph

“Gripping memoir, and a salute to the spirit of Hungary.” - The Observer
