it was amazing
Read from May 15 to 21, 2012

One of the best books I have read for a long time. A thirty something journalist walks out of her job shortly after her mother has died. She has also split up with her long term partner as the relationship has decayed over time.

She relies on friends and her father to support her as she runs out of money but doesn't have the wherewithal to get another job.

She is totally self absorbed as her mental state declines and the question is whether her friends are shabbily turning their backs on her or whether she is driving them away.

Repetitive and introspective it may be but it is also thought provoking and, in parts, very funny.
