The further adventures of Marie Sharp, groovy granny and diarist extraordinaire from celebrated agony aunt Virginia Ironside - for fans of Jenny Eclair and Sue Townsend
Another year, another January, and Marie Sharp has written a new diary, dishing the dirt on how the cool grannies live today. And her drug cravings aren't the half of it.
There's the handsome stranger who arrives as her new lodger. Is he all that he seems? There's the new project - teaching art at a school, now that her grandchild-minding days are numbered. Not to mention the mad dog and the crazy new neighbour.
And then there's the lump, a frightening symptom of... what?
Marie is back, courting laughter and disaster in equal measure. In her own inimitable style, she's getting older... and loving every minute of it.
Funny, often agonisingly sad - and familiar - The Lady (on No! I Don't Need Reading Glasses)
Witty and affectionate, wise but never pious, this is a delightfully irreverent look at growing older - The Spectator (on No! I Don't Need Reading Glasses!)
Wise, funny and heart-warming - Daily Mail (on No! I Don't Want to Join a Book Club)
