Abstract:

This is the story of a year in the life of Charlotte, Karen and Nan, none of whom can quite believe how things have turned out. When are you too young to be a mother? When are you too old to throw up in a flowerbed after too much vodka? Both hilarious and wise, it is a clear-eyed look at motherhood - and childhood - in its many guises, from the moment the condom breaks to the moment you file for divorce, and from the moment you hear your baby's first cry to the moment you realise that there are as many sorts of mother as there are children, and that love sometimes is the most important thing of all. Kate Long presents a tale of three generations of women - grandmother, mother and daughter - told from their separate perspectives, and which illustrates the complex relationships that exist between them.
