What do men run away from? Not war, not physical hardship, but the day-to-day emotional demands of impossible domestic situations. That's women's work. This is a story of female courage, where black comedy turns to disturbing pathos revolving around the rights of an indomitable woman

Review:

"A moving story, a condemnation of the way we treat our old friends and loves, a rage against the dying of the light" (Philip Howard The Times)

"A novel painfully full of feeling, and totally credible-the passion shines through" (Isabel Quigly Financial Times)

"A memorably touching story about the pressures on a family trying to do their best... A wonderfully accurate, powerful and even funny portrait" (Graham Lord Sunday Express)

"It is close to life in a way we hardly expect a novel to be, and finally very moving" (Hilary Mantel Daily Telegraph)

"An extremely skilful and angry novel...beautifully written" (Anita Brookner Spectator)

From the Publisher:

'An excellently funny, moving novel-a text for our times' Independent
