Description

From the bestselling author of the Adrian Mole series comes a brilliant, laugh-out-loud satire on modern Britain and the battle of the sexes 'There are two things that you should know about me immediately: the first is that I am beautiful, the second is that yesterday I killed a man. Both things were accidents ...' When Midlands housewife Coventry Dakin kills her neighbour in a wild bid to prevent him from strangling his wife, she goes on the run.
