Description

This book was rather different to the ones I'd read before; which wasn't a problem at all and I enjoyed it.

The front door is thickly painted in a matte shade of mushroom and dressed with nickel-plated knobs and knockers.And in the chaos of family life, Jem feels like she’s losing herself, while Ralph, stuck on the sidelines, feels like he’s lost his muse altogether. For starters, what partner sods off to the US for a nice holiday, after his wife has literally only just had a baby? Jem is Karl’s agent, and Karl’s joke (this is not the first time he has made it) is not funny anymore.

New readers won’t have much difficulty catching up with Ralph and Jem’s history thanks to Jewell’s ( Roommates Wanted, 2008, etc. A solution that didn't involve leading on men, going out drinking and trying to forget she is a mother! And so, for a very short while, over twelve years ago, back in 1996 when Oasis was the most famous band in the country and football was, supposedly, coming home, when she was a child of only twenty-seven, had Jem. Lisa Jewell can tell a story, adding just enough mystery and interesting observation to ease you through without thinking you've sullied your mind somehow. His actions towards the end of the book are incomprehensible to me (and I'm frustrated that I am unable to say anything further for fear of spoilers).

Even though it's been 10-12 years since I read Ralph's Party, I remembered Jem and Ralph's story and was thrilled to catch up with them.
