Agnes Day - sub-editor, suburbanite, failure extraordinaire - is unwell. Terminally middle-class, incurably romantic and chronically confused by life´s most basic interactions, Agnes discovers disconcerting gaps in her general understanding of the world, making recovery unlikely. 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.
´She is a writer with a poet´s eye for convincing detail, and touches on the raw emotions of life in a way that is affecting and true.´ Sunday Telegraph
´Told with irony and insight and some surreally beautiful imagery. At times it made me laugh out loud.´ Sheila Mackay
