Product description

Review

'This beautifully observed, intelligent and moving novel is one of those rare things - a small, carefully wrapped surprise that gets better and better with the unravelling.' The Scotsman 'Maggie Gee is a superb and pitiless analyser of middle-class angst. Elegant, humorous and surprising, this is a classy performance.' The Times 'My Cleaner is a moving, funny, engrossing book.' The Observer 'My Cleaner is a calmer, happier novel [than The Flood]. Yet a gnawing tragedy lies in the shadows, all the more poignant for the deftness with which it's brushed aside.' The Independent 'It's amazing how many details, characters, stories within stories, Maggie Gee's unquenchable exuberance crams into this comparatively short book.' The Spectator 'An intelligent and satisfying read.' The Sunday Times 'A smart satire on a subject central to most women's lives ... we either keep our houses clean, or pay someone else to do it. It's a queasy thought ... and [one] you will never brush casually aside again after reading My Cleaner.' Daily Telegraph 'Gee satirises the liberal conscience of the chattering classes with uncomfortable perception in this hugely enjoyable novel ... her portrayal of Britain's new underclass of immigrant workers is presented with her trademark stinging clarity.' Metro Praise for Maggie Gee: 'Gripping, original and highly entertaining - Maggie Gee at her superb best.' J G Ballard 'Dazzling ... alternately lyrical and austere ... unbearably touching.' The Observer 'Compulsively readable.' Guardian '... a rare writer who is willing to address issues topical to contemporary Britain.' Daily Telegraph --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
