Eleanor Flood knows she's a mess. But today will be different. Today she will shower and put on real clothes. She will attend her yoga class after dropping her son, Timby, off at school. She'll see an old friend for lunch. She won't swear. She will initiate sex with her husband, Joe. But before she can put her modest plan into action - life happens.
For today is the day Timby has decided to pretend to be ill to weasel his way into his mother's company. It's also the day surgeon Joe has chosen to tell his receptionist - but not Eleanor - that he's on vacation. And just when it seems that things can't go more awry, a former colleague produces a relic from the past - a graphic memoir, which tells of family secrets long buried and a sister to whom Eleanor never speaks.
From the dazzling pen of Maria Semple, author of best-selling Where'd You Go, Bernadette, comes a hilarious and life-affirming story about a woman who wakes up determined to be her best self.
