Plotting for grown-ups

Product description

Sally Howe's marriage is up the spout, her career is down the drain, and she's almost 60, but she refuses to be a dust bunny of society. Meanwhile, her brother Richard and best friend Wendy are throwing themselves into the dating inferno, and Sally's son Sam is trying 'to bring down the capitalist system, one benefit payment at a time.' Wry and insightful, this book offers a quirky take on being out in the world with no parachute at 60, with a nest you wish was empty, and a late-flowering passion more complicated than an Aran knitting pattern.
