Synopsis

Now and again we all lie awake wondering what on earth we're doing with our lives . . . don't we?

Claire Flannery has had more than a few sleepless nights lately. Maybe she shouldn't have walked out of her job with no idea what to do next. Maybe she should think before she speaks -- and maybe then her mother would start returning her calls. Maybe she should be spending more time going to art galleries, or reading up on current affairs, and less time in her pyjamas, entering competitions on the internet. Then again, maybe the perfect solution to life's problems only arises when you stop looking for it . . .

'Warmth and wit leaps off the pages . . . sharp, incisive and laugh-out-loud funny'
Observer

In the media

As insightful about the contemporary dilemmas facing young professionals as it is sharp, incisive and laugh-out-loud funny
Observer
Sharp and funny . . . exquisitely nails the sensation of being the only one in a group of friends who can't work out what life is supposed to be about
Stylist
Agenda-setting . . . Combining the honesty of Bridget Jones with the bang-on social observation of early Sex and the City, this nails it
