Enter the world of Susan Lilian Townsend - sun-worshippers, work-shy writers, garden centre lovers and those in search of a good time are all welcome...This sparkling collection of Sue Townsend's hilarious non-fiction covers everything from hosepipe bans to Spanish restaurants, from writer's block to slug warfare, from slob holidays to the banning of beige. These funny, perceptive and touching pieces reveal Sue, ourselves and the nation in an extraordinary new light. Sit back and chortle away as one of Britain's most popular and acclaimed writers takes a feather to your funny bone. "The Public Confessions of a Middle-Aged Woman (Aged 55 )" is Sue Townsend's brilliantly witty collection on non-fiction pieces. "Anyone who loved "The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole" will enjoy this collection of witty and sharply observed jottings from the inimitable Sue Townsend. Great stuff" ("OK!"). "Full of homely, hilarious asides on the absurdities of domestic existence...What a fantastic advertisement for middle-age - it can't be bad if it's this funny" ("Heat") "A welcome addition to any bookshelf" ("Hello!"). "It's as if Townsend has caught our idiosyncrasies on candid camera and is showing a rerun of all the silly clips...the ideal dip-in-and-out book" ("Time Out").

Her hugely successful novels include eight Adrian Mole books, "The Public Confessions of a Middle-Aged Woman (Aged 55 )", "Number Ten", "Ghost Children", "The Queen and I", "Queen Camilla" and "The Woman Who Went to Bed for a Year", all of which are highly acclaimed bestsellers.
