Product description

Review

Kathy Lette can make even the toughest subjects funny. Romance and the more difficult shores of parenthood meld easily in this tender portrait of a deeply connected mother and son. Don't miss out on Lette's best book to date. The Lady 20120309 A voice of truth behind the gags...This is writing that excels. The Independent 20120302 A funny and moving tale. Daily Express 20120305 A rather searing read...While this is a departure for Lette, best known for pun-tastic romantic comedies, she's managed to weld all this darkness to her usual glittering style with surprising success. -- Wendy Holden Daily Mail 20120224 Moving, funny and different. Woman & Home
