Description

Guilt is in the eye of the beholder ...When her cold and indifferent husband vanishes, so does Lois's old life. Now she is ready to take her chances again. There's only one fly in the ointment: Janie-Gay, ex-partner of the son Lois lost to drugs, and spiteful mother of the small, neglected child she can't get out of her mind.Caring's not something one can lay aside, and Lois is soon tangled in webs of deceit. Worse, she is on a collision course with a remorseless society that claims to support and protect. Now, more than ever, she could use the skills of her once frozen heart... Fly in the Ointment is Anne Fine's seventh novel.Her first was the critically acclaimed The Killjoy, which was runner up for the David Higham Prize for Fiction.Taking the Devil's Advice and Telling Liddy have both been adapted for radio. The Observer referred to her novel In Cold Domain as 'a glorious tirade against the grind of motherhood' and the Evening Standard described All Bones and Lies as 'splendid, clever, cruel and funny'.Anne Fine's work has been translated into over thirty languages. She has two grown-up daughters and lives in County Durham.For more information on Anne Fine and her books, see her website at www.annefine.co.uk
