Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The queen of the one-liners does it again with a tale that bowls along at great speed. She is such fun even when tackling meaty family problems, here centring on a marriage breakdown and child custody. It’s a good story told with flair – a real page-turner.

Comparison: Lisa Jewell, Jane Green, Jenny Éclair.

If you like Kathy Lette you might also like to read books by Mavis Cheek, David Nobbs and Allison Pearson.

Synopsis

To Love, Honour and Betray by Kathy Lette

You can always trust a man - to do the dirty on you

When Lucy finds out her football coach hubby's been playing away from home, she's devastated. But when she discovers just who he's been scoring with, she wants to kick a few balls of her own.

So now that Lucy's learnt that her perfect marriage was like most of her orgasms (faked), the big question is are all men bastards, or will she find the one exception to the rule?

Witty...her jokes are inspired. There's a breezy, engaging lack of inhibition in her writing. Lette's fans will lap it up.

About the Author

Kathy Lette

Kathy Lette is a celebrated and outspoken comic writer who has an inimitable take on serious current issues. She is one of the pioneering voices of contemporary feminism, paving the way for Caitlin Moran and Lena Dunham.

She first achieved succès de scandale as a teenager with the novel Puberty Blues, which was made into a major film and a TV mini-series. After several years as a newspaper columnist and TV sitcom writer in America and Australia, she’s written 11 international bestsellers in her characteristic witty voice, including Mad Cows, How to Kill Your Husband - and Other Handy Household Hints (staged by the Victorian opera) and The Boy Who Fell to Earth. She is known for her regular appearances on BBC and Sky news programmes. She is an ambassador for Women and Children First, Plan International, the White Ribbon Alliance and the NAS.

Kathy Lette lives in London with her husband, her autistic son (the actor Julius Robertson) and daughter, and can often be found at The Savoy drinking a cocktail named after her. Kathy is an autodidact (a word she taught herself), but has honorary doctorates from Southampton Solent and Wollongong Universities and a Senior Fellowship from Regent’s College.
