My Brilliant Divorce

By Geraldine Aron

A deliciously entertaining exploration of divorce, dating and the search for love.

the hilarious but poignant story of Angela, who recently deserted by her accountant husband for a younger woman, finds herself adrift in a sea of weird sexual encounters, sneaky solicitors, a disapproving mother, phone-in counsellors, a bad case of hypochondria and the spectre of poverty! Should she fight to keep her husband? Or should she sign the final papers and move on?
