The Night My Bum Dropped

Front Cover
ReadHowYouWant.com, 2011 - Large print books - 258 pages
In this gleefully exaggerated memoir, Gretel Killeen looks at the big questions that we're confronted with in times of calamity: what the hell is life all about and what on earth are we supposed to do with it? Yes, it's the female midlife crisis for the generation who were meant to be superwomen, able to run a global empire, raise a family, help a crippled dog give birth and do the ironing while having multiple orgasms! With warmth, wisdom and wicked wit, Gretel seeks advice from old friends ('life sucks and then you die'), new friends ('life is a life-changing experience') and family ('maybe you should rent out your big bum as a kind of mobile advertising space'), taking us on a hilarious yet poignant ride as she stands on top of the hill that she's not only climbed but has also built, looks at the view and wonders, ''Is this all there is?''
