0 Reviews
From the bestselling author of 'Eats Shoots & Leaves', a wonderfully funny collection of twelve monologues. In the tradition of Alan Bennett's 'Talking Heads' come Lynne Truss's twelve bittersweet tales about love, romance, friendship and family. Her six men and six women each have very different stories to tell, ranging from the wife who feels better when her husband disappears to the pedant who undergoes a TV makeover and the swimmer who can't escape the shadow of her sister...but all are funny, touching and as beautifully observed as would be expected from the bestselling author. Whether describing fathers and daughters, married men, cat-lovers or 'other women', she is always brilliantly perceptive.

Completely gorgeous collection of monologues, each presented by different, extremely good actors. The stories are quirky, surprising, hilarious, and sometimes deeply touching to the point where this reviewer had to slow the car in order to deal with his emotions... Congratulations Lynne.
