Pear Shaped, Paperback / softback Book

Pear Shaped Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


If you found yourself glued to David Nicholls's One Day or belting out the lyrics to Amy Winehouse's Back to Black then you'll love this book. Girl meets boy. Girl loses boy. Girl loses mind. Sophie Klein walks into a bar one Friday night and her life changes.

She meets James Stephens: charismatic, elusive, and with a hosiery model ex who casts a long, thin shadow over their burgeoning relationship.

He's clever, funny and shares her greatest pleasure in life - to eat and drink slightly too much and then have a little lie down.

Sophie's instinct tells her James is too good to be true - and he is. An exploration of love, heartbreak, self-image, self-deception and lots of food.

Pear-Shaped is in turns smart, laugh-out-loud funny and above all, recognizable to women everywhere.
