Fictions: How Hard Can It Be?

Hay Festival 2018 , 

Kate Reddy is counting down the days until she is 50, but not in a good way. Fifty, in Kate’s mind, equals invisibility. And with hormones that have her in shackles, teenage children who need her but won’t talk to her and ailing parents who aren’t coping, Kate is in the middle of a sandwich that she isn’t even allowed to eat because of the calories. The long-awaited sequel to the bestselling comedy I Don’t Know How She Does It is just as funny and wise, and unputdownable.
