'When I reached pensionable age, as a woman I suddenly felt I had become a non-person. But women's lives today are vastly different from those of our mothers and grandmothers. For one thing, our mothers are probably still alive and we have working daughters, and grandchildren, plus friends and lovers. And even work...But this is still not really visible in literature.

When Jessica's husband of 34 years left her for a younger woman, she thought her life would be solitary thereafter. How wrong she is: with her children, grandchildren, friends and neighbours and Mother downing cans of Red Bull in her retirement home, plus the activities that go on in a small town, her life is often very funny. There is even new love. Humorous chicklit for the older woman.

  • Shaikh-Down on June 19, 2011

    I have not read any erotica before so I am not quite sure how to rate this aspect of Shaikhdown. It made my hair stand on end frequently. On the other hand, I laughed out loud more often and the plot was a real page turner. And the author's take on life in an arab country was an eye opener. Can it really be as chaotic and bizarre?
