Meet Chloe Zhivago, 43, married - and asking, is that it? Monogamy forever and ever...? A brilliantly entertaining novel from a major new talent in women's fiction.
Chloe has been married for what feels like all eternity to Greg who tests his memory in infuriating ways, for example hiding the kettle from himself in the drum of the washing machine. Chloe is a successful psychotherapist with two children and a Famous Friend from hell. She's got it all. So why does she want to rub her life out and start all over again? Is it just because she hasn't had sex for 245 days?
When Chloe meets temptation in the shape of Ivan, does she dare risk a passionate Russian romance before gravity wins the battle with her face and figure? Can she get away with one glorious, final fling...?
