Sue Townsend's brilliant novel that hilariously deconstructs modern family life.

The day her children leave home, Eva climbs into bed and stays there.

She's had enough - of her children's carelessness, her husband's thoughtlessness and of the world's general indifference.

Brian can't believe his wife is doing this, he takes it badly and rings Eva's mother - but she's busy having her hair done.

So he rings his mother - she isn't surprised. Eva, she says, is probably drunk. Let her sleep it off. But Eva won't budge. This is a funny and touching novel about what happens when someone refuses to be the person everyone expects them to be.

Reissue.
