Product description


"This slice of angst and affluenza is several cuts above the rest ... witty, observant and supremely intelligent" (The Times)

"There is something of Bridget Jones's hopeless-but-adorable quality about Lucy ... Neill's hilarious depiction of the manifold daily perils of stay-at-home motherhood is so convincing that it soon looks like the most challenging job in the world - and Lucy is all the more sympathetic simply for staying afloat" (Daily Telegraph)

"If you're struggling to find your own inner yummy mummy, this is for you. After a few pages you'll want to make heroine Lucy Sweeney your best mate as her trials and tribulations wash away your own troubles" (Woman)

"Above the usual class of post-baby fiction...an intelligent and funny look at modern parenting" (Eve)

"This will have you laughing out loud with empathy" (Star Magazine)

Book Description

From the hugely popular Times columnist, her Sunday Times bestselling debut novel about modern motherhood.

'Hilarious ... a literary phenomenon to rival Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones's
Diary and Allison Pearson's I Don't Know How She Does It ... Plays with the
chaos and comedy of 30-something metropolitan maternity and brings it to an
unexpectedly moving conclusion.' - Anna Wintour, Vogue
