Hey Yeah Right Get A Life, Paperback / softback Book

Hey Yeah Right Get A Life Paperback / softback

Description

Helen Simpson's third collection is a bold, honest exploration of the trials and the rewards of motherhood.

Here are tales of a highflyer stuck at an interminable Burns Night celebration, increasingly aware of the babysitter waiting for her at home; an exhausted mother longing for adult conversation but whose son unwittingly precludes it; and a teenage girl whose fraught encounter with a harried mum of one brings newfound appreciation for her own capable mother of four.

Most strikingly of all we meet Dorrie, whose efforts to calm her tinderbox of a family leave her struggling to contain her own emotions.

Hey Yeah Right Get a Life is a singular achievement: funny, relatable, perceptive and utterly poignant.
