About the Book ▾

Jilly Cooper on sex, socialising and survival.

‘One truth I have learnt, as middle age enmeshes me like Virginia creeper, is that I shall never change-because my capacity for self-improvement is absolutely nil.’

Jilly Cooper’s observations from her days as a much-loved newspaper columnist cover everything to do with sex, socialising and survival – from marriage, friendship and the minutiae of family life, to the tedium of going to visit people for the weekend, the stress of hosting dinner parties and the descent of middle age.

Entertaining and full of heart, this classic collection of journalism from the legendary author explores the highs and lows of everyday life with wit, wisdom and warmth.
