Like Being A WifeBook - 2010
" Shortlisted for the Age Fiction Prize. She finds more ways to be funny than I could count, yet she can cast a light into a dark corner before you know she's done it. Nick Earls Daisy is married to her job, Shirley de Young is engaged to Jack but would as soon be married to herself, while Joannie has left her husband for a fling with the movie star, Ralph Fiennes. Brad is inspired by the Eureka uprising to break up with his girlfriend, and an unexpected influx of babies - two thousand of them - calls into question the meaning of Jenny's life. Flitting from Sydney to Melbourne, Canberra to California, this loosely linked collection of stories shines a bright fluorescent light on family, friendships, work, love and loss."
