* 'Hilariously accurate. The funniest novel about the female mid-life crisis' The Times * Clara Hutt is forty-six years old, and in pretty good nick, considering. She has kick-ass underwear, a large and loving family, and a healthy sense of what matters in life. Until Gaby moves in. Gaby's an old school friend of Clara's who has just returned from LA. She may be a yoga mogul who lives off kale, and speaks a made-up fantasy novel language, but Gaby's no stranger to cosmetic surgery: she's almost fifty, but looks thirty-six at most. What with Gaby, and Clara's son's leggy girlfriend, Sky, wafting around the house in her stripy pants, Clara starts to wonder if a little Botox, a little filler, a nip and a tuck, would be so very wrong. Should she ignore the fear? Or is there another way to grow old gracefully - and how far is she prepared to go to find out? 'Had me reaching for the hankie as I wept with laughter from start to finish' Evening Standard 'A brilliant mix of humour and heart . . . offers a witty take on the ageing process, delivered in Knight's usual pithy, thought-provoking style' Grazia 'Tear-inducingly funny . . . we love this story' Closer 'Gleeful. A frank and funny novel of Harley Street makeovers and matronly madness' Independent India Knight is the author of three previous novels: My Life on a Plate, Don't You Want Me and Comfort and Joy. Her non-fiction books include The Shops, the bestselling diet book Neris and India's Idiot-Proof Diet, the accompanying bestselling cookbook Neris and India's Idiot-Proof Diet Cookbook and The Thrift Book. India is a columnist for the Sunday Times and lives in London with her three children.
