Separation Anxiety charmed me...it's melancholic, quirky, comic, honest' MARIAN KEYES, author of GROWN UPS If you've ever wondered whether you love your dog more than your partner... Life hasn't gone according to Judy's plan. Her career as a children's book author has taken an embarrassing nose dive. Her teenage son Teddy treats her with a combination of mortification and indifference. Her best friend has enough to deal with. And her husband, Gary, has become a pot-addled 'snackologist' who she can't afford to divorce. On top of it all, she has a painfully ironic job writing articles for a self-help website-a poor fit for someone seemingly incapable of helping herself. Gleefully irreverent, tender, funny and uplifting, Separation Anxiety is a contemporary novel that celebrates the 'squeezed generation'; a book filled with heart and humour for anyone fumbling their way towards happiness.
