DescriptionMiss Hawkins looked at her watch. It was two-thirty. If everything went according to schedule, she could safely reckon to be dead by six o clock.
But by the day s end, events have taken a dramatic turn and Miss Hawkins is sentenced to live. Forcibly retired, she is presented by her colleagues with a five-year diary.
Programmed since childhood to total obedience, Miss Hawkins slavishly follows her dairy s commands until the impossible happens she meets a man. As a last reprieve from the horrors of loneliness she embarks on a determined full-scale mission to taste life s secret pleasures and pains until the cup runs dry
