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'
