Book summary

Lively, pertinent and honest about the realities of growing older, this thoroughly engaging novel is impossible to put down. Fifty - nine and widowed, with not much money coming in and not many friends, Clarice decides to buy a flat with Una, an acquaintance from her school days. The perfect solution? Not exactly. Una comes complete with sixteen - year - old Sheree, who is very loud, very pregnant. And why exactly is she there anyway? For solace, Clarice turns to another acquaintance, Beryl, who in turn confides in her imaginary friend, Greg, borrowed from a seventies TV drama. These wacky but entirely believable women bounce off each other uncomfortably: Clarice catches up with the truth about Una's past; Una deals with her oddball boyfriend in unexpectedly dramatic fashion; Beryl argues with Greg; and young Sheree spins closer to the birth of her baby.
