She can see right inside your heart,

This review is from: Hey Yeah Right Get a Life (Hardcover)
This woman just gets better, funnier and scarier with every book she turns out. The loathsome, callous Jade; Robin the adoring toddler; Dorrie, the heroine and nemesis of every thirty-something mother - Helen Simpson has been bugging your home and office again. Cafe Society had me in tears of appalled recognition; the title story made me laugh loudly enough to turn heads on a crowded train. Thank you, Helen, for putting into words so much more elegantly and truthfully than anyone else I have ever read, what mothers feel. I sometimes think I would love to write and then I encounter a masterpiece like this and think better of it. Phew.
