In this definitive collection, Julia Darling’s indomitable women emerge laughing, shouting and snarling. Darling’s cast of aunties, sisters, mothers and grandmothers do battle with house keys and knitting needles as they deal with cancer, teen angst and tyranny.
Their heartbreakingly funny stories portray women making their own worlds – of survival, love and loyalty. This exquisite book will enfold the reader in an origami of vivacious, witty narratives, exploring the fault lines in everyday life.
