An amusing and easy read,
This review is from: Sorting Out Billy (Paperback)
'Sorting Out Billy' is essentially a novel about the friendship between three women; Martha, Flower and Sarah. When I say friendship, I mean realistic friendship where you can equally love and be irritated by someone, rather than the romanticised version of friendship found in most novels. All women are going through change in their lives; Martha is about to give birth; Flower is trying to make it as a stand-up comedian; and Sarah is in a tempestuous relationship with Billy. But, when Martha and Flower find out that Billy has hit Sarah, this is when they decide that something must be done....
I think some of the other reviewers have been unnecessarily harsh about this novel. There are some great observations and very humorous passages (I loved the 'altercation' on the night bus!) and it's a nice easy read.
I look forward to reading something else by one of the best female comedians of her generation!
