My satire on the trials and tribulations of pregnancy, lust, love and the occupational hazard of the single girl – falling in love with a married man. It’s one of the books I most enjoyed writing. If you’re up the duff, or even just contemplating stretching your vagina the customary five kilometers, this book will tell you what to expect when you’re expecting. This was my ‘break through’ book in Britain. And, I hope it will ensure you break your waters laughing. I’ve sold the rights many times, to the BBC and to various independent producers, but it is still in cinematic gestation.
