Twenty-first century women have it all. We can do what we want, when we want and with whom we want.
Can't we? "Bit on the Side" is a collection of life stories by women in their 20s to 70s.
From novelists to academics, broadcasters to chefs, this book is about how we live now: our desires, discontents, ambitions and commitments.
Challenging stereotypes of domestic goddesses, 'oldies', 'singletons', hippies, footballers, DJs and mistresses, "Bit on the Side" reports and reflects on new identities with wit and verve. And while not claiming to have 'the answers', the writing here offers fresh views on the politics of sex and gender in Britain today.
