AN INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER AND NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE Meet Kate Reddy, fund manager and mother of two.
A victim of time famine, Kate counts seconds like other women count calories.
Factor in a manipulative nanny, an Australian boss who looks at Kate's breasts as if they're on special offer, a long-suffering husband, her quietly aghast in-laws, two needy children and an email lover, and you have a woman juggling so many balls that some day something's going to hit the ground.
In an uproariously funny and achingly sad novel, Allison Pearson brilliantly dramatises the dilemma of working motherhood at the start of the twenty-first century.
