Summary (From the publisher):

A spiky, feisty, hilarious collection of stories that expose women's clumsy, often doomed, sometimes miraculous, attempts to negotiate a smooth path through life.

Abandoned wives remain as lingering presences in the homes of their ex-husbands' new girlfriends; beautiful young models find their sins exposed in the tabloids for all the world to see; middle-aged women get swept off their feet and into the criminal underworld by charismatic con men; young trophy wives get thrown in jail after over-exuberance on their private yachts; mothers beg their thirty-something career-minded daughters to freeze their eggs in the hope that they may yet have grandchildren.
