‘The funniest take on love and marriage I’ve read in years – possibly ever’ – SANTA MONTEFIORE

‘Social satire at its finest’ – CANDACE BUSHNELL

‘I fell over laughing’ CLAUDIA WINKLEMAN

Have You Got Anything Stronger? is a sharp and furiously funny novel about being married with two children.

We follow a year in the life of four best friends as they navigate careers, friendship, love, sex, money, children, and question their harassed realities.

Why did they get married? Do they like their children? Does lemon in your vodka and tonic count as one of your five a day? Does life ever, you know, slow down?

Between running late, meetings, pick-ups and drop- offs, it’s clear the hamster wheel never really stops turning and the question eventually must be asked . . .

Is this it?

For fans of Why Mummy Drinks, this next-generation Bridget Jones’s Diary will resonate with women who, between running late for playdates, meetings and Ocado deliveries, have realised that the hamster wheel never stops turning, and it may be too late to crash out.

Reviews for Have You Got Anything Stronger?:

‘This rollicking, moving comedy of contemporary urban family life is reminiscent of I Don’t Know How She Does It. Except that it’s bolder, wilder, swearier and even funnier . . . Fabulous’ – Daily Mail

‘Painfully relatable and funny’ – Heat

‘A hilarious new satire’ – Hello

‘A sort of midlife Bridget Jones with less drinking shame’ – Sunday Times
