Originally published: as part of A bunch of fives. London: Vintage Classic, 2012.

Enjoy Helen Simpson's sharply funny, humane take on the everyday joys and struggles of motherhood in this perfect Mother's Day gift. Welcome to motherhood - a land of aching fatigue, constant self-sacrifice and thankless servitude, a land of bottomless devotion, small hands and feet like warm pink roses, and velvet kisses.

Here is a land where men and women, once carefree and engrossed in work and sex, now try to solve age-old arguments and search fruitlessly for another hour in the day.

Perhaps you know this land well, or perhaps you're entering it for the first time - either way, you need these honest funny humane stories from an expert guide. Selected from Helen Simpson's short story collections Dear George, Hey Yeah Right Get a Life and ConstitutionalVINTAGE MINIS: GREAT MINDS.
