Funny, sad-the perils of modern motherhood, 4 April 2001
I bought, I read, I laughed, I cried, I recognised me, my friends and foes. Helen Simpson writes like an exocet missile to the heart of modern, middle class motherhood. Everywhere is compromise,angst,love and sadness. Neeedless to say, having read this book I bought four copies and distributed them around my friends!
