Publisher Description

'A funny, frightening book that is also refreshingly bonkers' Guardian

'A brilliant writer...a great novelist' Richard and Judy

Northern girl Harriet lives and works on a London estate which is a battleground between the white working class plus the immigrants versus the newly arrived middle class focaccia-eaters.

Unhappy and overweight, she hires a personal trainer who lures her into joining the martial arts class he runs. There she learns the regime of the completely phoney martial arts master and embarks on a spiritual and literal journey which leads her to a hotel opposite the railway station at Crewe, the Weeping Women Hotel.

'If you like your weirdness with warmth and wit, Sayle's your man' Metro
