Adult Fiction SIMPSON
Summary: Hilarious, honest, and thoroughly entertaining, these sharp stories show Helen Simpson to be one of our finest observers of women on the edge. Set in and around contemporary London, these nine interconnected stories explore all the bliss and irritations of domestic life. A suburban teenager vows never to succumb to the "flabby womany-ness" and career juggling that her mother has disappeared into. Two shattered women get tipsy at a small cafe and end up revealing more than they intended. In a boutique so exclusive that entrance requires a password, a working mother explores the anesthetizing power of highly impractical clothing. And in the mesmerizing title story, a mother of three takes life one day at a time, while studiously avoiding the question of whether she wants the life she has at all.
