Summary

Agnes Day – sub-editor, suburbanite, failure extraordinaire – is unwell. Terminally middle-class, incurably romantic and chronically confused by life’s most basic interactions, Agnes discovers disconcerting gaps in her general understanding of the world, making recovery unlikely. Life and love go on without her, but with a little facade, she can pass herself off as a success. Beneath the fiction, however, the burden of truth becomes harder to bear.

‘She is a writer with a poet’s eye for convincing detail, and touches on the raw emotions of life in a way that is affecting and true.’ Sunday Telegraph

‘Told with irony and insight and some surreally beautiful imagery. At times it made me laugh out loud.’ Sheila Mackay
