' "Don't you worry about me". She wiped her cheeks with her hand. "I'm going to have a lovely party."
on 17 May 2012
Edward, a married middle aged accountant, decides to compensate his mistress Binny for spending so little time with her.
'He denied her the simple pleasures a wife took for granted- that business of cooking his meals, remembering his sister's birthday, putting intricate little bundles of socks in his drawer.'
So he selects a broadminded couple of friends to attend a dinner party at Binny's. After she has offloaded her awful children, made an attempt at cooking dinner in her rather grotty kitchen and they have got through the initial awkwardness, things seem to be going OK. But events are about to take an unexpected turn...
Quite a funny novel with many clever little observations on life and people.
