Incontinent on the Continent : My Mother, Her Walker, and Our Grand Tour of Italy Paperback
To honour a promise to her dying father, Jane takes her ageing incontinent mother to Italy.
What could possibly go wrong? Jane Christmas had always had a difficult relationship with her mother, but thought that a mother and daughter trip to Italy could be the start of a whole new friendship. In this hilarious but poignant memoir, she discovers that it will not be that easy.
Describing her mother as a cross between `Queen Victoria and Hyacinth Bucket', Jane struggles to build bridges to a woman she has always found a puzzle, while also trying to cope with her mother's failing health and physical needs.
