Agnes Day - sub-editor, suburbanite, failure extraordinaire - is unwell. Terminally middle-class, incurably romantic and chronically confused by life's most basic equations, Agnes discovers disconcerting gaps in her general education which make recovery unlikely. Life and love go on without her, but with the barest minimum of cosmetic assistance she can pass herself off as a success. Beneath her fiction, however, the burden of truth becomes harder to bear.
'This is a sceptical, ironic, beautifully resonant prose, articulate throughout, with never a lapse. . . a splendid novel'
Philip Hobsbawm, Guardian

'Funny and full of promise. Rachel Cusk writes very well and distinctively' Margaret Drabble
