May Contain Nuts
Alice never imagined that she would end up like this. Is she the only mother who feels so permanently panic-striken at the terrors of the modern world - or is it normal to sit up in bed all night popping bubble wrap? She worries that too much gluten and dairy may be hindering her children's mental arithmetic. She frets that there are too many cars on the road to let them out of the 4x4. Finally she resolves to take control and tackle her biggest worry of all: her daughter is definately not going to fail that crucial secondary school entrance exam. Because Alice has decided to take the test in her place...
"O'Farrell is one of the best contemporary satirists in the business and he has middle class pushy mothers down to a tee in this latest toe-curling, hackle-rising chronicle of hyper-parenting... The one-liners are sublime and the comedic situation utterly hilarious. Don't miss this."
