"What goes on in these four walls is none of their concern,
shut your mouth and keep it shut is what you need to learn..."

Mumb: a personal exploration of the dark side of motherhood and what it means to be a woman.

"To read Mumb is to sit at a rickety northern kitchen table with an old mate, as she shares the intimacies and heartaches of being a woman of a certain age, doing her best and sometimes failing; of striving, coping, suffering and surviving. While you scoff cinnamon buns and try to ignore the smell of the unemptied cat litter. It is a book full of love and honesty." - Julie Hesmondhalgh
