Diary of a Misfit Mummy is a much more anchored, realistic tale of life amongst the Battersea / Fulham set. Lot's of modern cameos - someone will have fun putting this on the screen - all the usual Mumsnet suspects : LK Bennett, Guardian readers, Bankers, Ac-tors, Cath Kidston, Alpha Mummies, Range Rover drivers. Those irreproachably, irredeemably middle class "Social Stereotypes" from the Telegraph.
As a book, it certainly makes you think - why have literally millions given up on Blair's Bog Standard State Schools and Academies in London? Why are nearly a fifth of all Sixth formers in Private Education? And what is it about affluence that makes people even more insecure?
Curious that it's only on Kindle - you'd think it would have been a Blog which turned into a Paperback. Maybe there's a "Julie and Julia" style blog somewhere that I don't know about.
Going back to John O"Farrell's book - "May contain Nuts" was an amusing read, and an entertaining TV play, but would have been better without the exam substitution and ultimate conclusion.
Diary of a Misfit Mummy is the better book -realistic characters, and better social commentary on those terrifying Schoolgate Mothers. Could have done with some more polishing - think of it as the Yummy Mummy's version of the "Manchild" BBC TV series, but I enjoyed it, and I'm looking forward to Amanda Egan's next book.
Conclusion: Ideal holiday or commuter read - for Mumsnet Mummies and their, almost, patient husbands.
