9780099502883: The Secret Life of a Slummy Mummy

For Lucy Sweeney, motherhood isn't all astanga yoga and Cath Kidston prints. It's been years since the dirty laundry pile was less than a metre high, months since Lucy remembered to have sex with her husband, and a week since she last did the school run wearing pyjamas.

Motherhood, it seems, has more pitfalls than she might have expected. Caught between perfectionist Yummy Mummy No 1 and hypercompetitive Alpha Mum, Lucy is in danger of losing the parenting plot. And worst of all, she's alarmingly distracted by Sexy Domesticated Dad. It's only a matter of time before the dirty laundry quite literally blows up in her face...

Product Description:

REad but well kept. A hilarious literary phenomenon to rival the Bridget Jones's diary series. Perfect for failed domestic goddesses everywhere... (fic)

Review:

"This slice of angst and affluenza is several cuts above the rest ... witty, observant and supremely intelligent" ( The Times)

"There is something of Bridget Jones's hopeless-but-adorable quality about Lucy ... Neill's hilarious depiction of the manifold daily perils of stay-at-home motherhood is so convincing that it soon looks like the most challenging job in the world - and Lucy is all the more sympathetic simply for staying afloat" ( Daily Telegraph)

"If you're struggling to find your own inner yummy mummy, this is for you. After a few pages you'll want to make heroine Lucy Sweeney your best mate as her trials and tribulations wash away your own troubles" ( Woman)

"Above the usual class of post-baby fiction...an intelligent and funny look at modern parenting" ( Eve)

"This will have you laughing out loud with empathy" ( Star Magazine)
