164 pages. Monday October 26th 'I start my day the Valium way at 7.20 when my departing husband brings me a mug of tea. My two children burst into the bedroom yelling, shouting, bawling. They've been up since 6 ... Between the hours of 11 and 12, I pass my time in the gentle art of housekeeping as is my wont on most days of most weeks of most years, making beds, dusting furniture in case anybody calls. Who’s goingto call? Who is there to call? ls there anybody out there?’ This is Jane Bennett speaking. Sharp observation and biting wit characterise this brilliant fictional diary of a housewife. We meet our heroine ten years into marriage, negotiating the perils of daily domestic routine - the drama and boredom, frustrations and fulfilments of life as a wife and mother. Here is life as it is lived by millions of women. Hilarious and heartbreaking, it is the inside story of every girl's dream.
