In this addictive short story collection, twenty-four very different women reach a pivotal moment in their lives.
A widow is liberated by a new job, but keeps it secret from her family. A date in suburbia has dramatic results. A seamstress takes revenge on an unsuspecting customer, while in France, a mother is promised 'fantastic news' - and lets her imagination run away with her.
With each story, Jenny Eclair introduces a fascinating new character. And behind each woman lies a gripping tale - of betrayal, of love, of hope and defiance.
Funny, heart-breaking, inspiring - and packed with wicked one liners - this wonderful collection shows Jenny Eclair's exceptional talent for observation at its very best. Based on Jenny Eclair's Radio 4 series, Little Lifetimes.

Jenny in many guises
Extremely funny book of short stories. However I found myself picturing Jenny in every role as her voice so clearly comes through. Not that I minded. Loved it.
