What the Critics Say

"This brilliantly written read is original, surprising, funny and clever. I raced to the end, totally engrossed by McLaren’s forensic examination of the demise of this very modern marriage. Wonderful - I loved it." (Daily Mail)
"A brilliant fresh take on the collapse of a modern marriage. Well-observed, beautifully written but mostly screechingly funny. I laughed, I gasped. Give it to all your friends." (Camilla Long)
