Winner of the Whitbread First Novel AwardAgnes Day - sub-editor, suburbanite, failure extraordinaire - has discovered disconcerting gaps in her general understanding of the world.
Terminally middle-class and incurably romantic, Agnes finds herself chronically confused by the most basic interactions.
Life and love go on without her, but with a little facade she can pass herself off as a success.
Beneath the fiction, however, the burden of truth becomes harder to bear.
