Win ONE of FIVE Copies of ‘No thanks! I’m quite happy standing!’ By Virginia Ironside

This month you could be in with a chance of winning ONE of FIVE copies of ‘No thanks! I’m quite happy standing!’ By Virginia Ironside.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Marie is turning 69 this year, but there are no signs of her slowing down – she has a new lodger (very into conspiracy theories), an intractable iPhone to wrestle with, and a trip to India to plan!

As usual the year brings plenty of challenges as well as opportunities. Marie is burgled, which sends the street into uproar. Ex-husband David is still around and getting rather too close for comfort. Marie’s cat Pouncer is starting to look rather peaky (her conspiracy-theorist lodger is convinced someone is poisoning him), and probably worst of all, it seems Gene is getting too old to want to hang out with his groovy granny any more. Maybe learning to paint graffiti and speak street slang will help win him back?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Full of Virginia Ironside’s inimitable wit and featuring plenty of popular characters from this series, this is a hilarious and touching look at getting older from one of Britain’s sharpest observers of relationships.

VIRGINIA IRONSIDE is a journalist, agony aunt and author, and has recently taken to the stage with her one-woman show Growing Old Disgracefully. Directed by Nigel Planer, her ‘granny stand-up’ premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2009 and she’s been touring ever since.

Virginia lives in London and has one son and two grandsons.

No, Thanks! I’m Quite Happy Standing is out now (Quercus, £8.99)
