Product details

It's the antidote to every stupid, boring, reductive magazine article you've ever read, or every silly, hair-twirling, chick lit confection about girls called Arabella who marry bankers and live in Gstaad. It's for women who love their children but don't want them to run their lives; and for women who love their lives and won't have them run by children. It's about revising expectations, exploding myths and generally dealing with all that life, love and other people have to throw at you.

'Magnificent. Their guide is infused with wit, warmth and wisdom and a refreshing dose of common sense.' Stephanie Merritt, Observer 'I love this book. It's one of those rare beasts that you want to earmark, scribble in and rush out and buy for all your girlfriends. Intensely charming, like a clever, fascinating woman in an impeccable little black dress at a dinner party where every other woman is flashing her fake tits and batting her eyelashes. "Backwards in High Heels" tells it how it is' India Knight, Sunday Times '"Backwards in High Heels" is a gem. Not a self-help book or a style guide, but full of kindly practical advice and information about subjects from love to grief to philosophy. Worldly, witty and wonderfully wise, this lovely book about negotiating the world if you're a modern woman should be handed out free on the NHS.' Tina Jackson, Metro 'A witty and penetrating examination of the fantasies women create that imprison them. Marvellously liberating.' Dorothy Rowe
