Very good fun for a very good cause,
By A Customer
This review is from: Girls' Night In (Paperback)
My copy of Girls' Night In is stationed right next to the bath - all the stories are exactly the right length for a good soak and very relaxing too. All right, so it's not exactly EM Forster, but there are some witty gems and the usual sprinkling of zingy one-liners you can reuse on your mates as necessary. Like a good bath, the best stories have a lingering effect after the initial froth washes off; Polly Samson's story is as delicately drawn as you'd expect, and Helen Simpson's 'Hurrah for the Hols' is a more adult exploration of womanhood and the responsibilities of being a mother. With 31 stories from 31 authors, there will be *something* here that you like, which, let's face it, makes it pretty good value.
