Have the inevitable signs of ageing taken you completely by surprise? Do Friends Reunited emails from primary school acquaintances precipitate an instant mid-life crisis? Has your computer introduced levels of frustration into your life that you never dreamed were possible? Does the sound of orchestrated easy-listening music while you're on hold for half an hour drive you to despair? Then this demented cartoon narrative may help slightly, although how I can't imagine. This is an absolute must for the middle-aged but immature woman and her bewildered partner - or anyone obsessed with looking on the Internet at properties for sale in sunny countries.

Review quote

'Her cartoons are ingenuous to the point of naivety; the jokes are boiled hard, then reduced to their purest distillation in the silliest, simplest form' Guardian 'Not bad for a girl' Roger Law, Spitting Image 'Somehow I knew getting older was going to be crap. Didn't realise it would be so funny though' Jo Brand 'Hilariously and uncomfortably familiar ... Not at all like my own life, you understand, obviously ... I'm very secure and happy, thank you' Dawn French

About Jacky Fleming

Jacky Fleming is best remembered as architect of the National Health Service, and for her contribution to freestyle swimming. Abandoned by wolves at an early age she was raised by feral intellectuals just down the road from Hampstead. She has only ever experienced the world like someone who has just woken up out of a long trance.
