Two's Company : Love Again - A Woman's Journey Synopsis

Poignant, whimsical, funny, this chronicle describes what it feels like to be looking for love in your sixties, when you look back at your past experiences and wonder: could I live up to a new challenge? Would I make the same mistakes? Could I be happy with a man at last? Whatever our age, we want to share, talk, laugh with someone; we need touch, sex, closeness; and, we also need a witness: we have so much to give still, and balk at the prospect of the rest of our lives going unrecorded in another's gaze, feeling wasted. This book reflects on solitude, yearning, ageing, with the fear of no longer being thought attractive. It also reflects on childhood, and how we learn about love, our dreams and first experiences. But it mainly describes the author's meetings with men, and those were mostly brief on a background of hope, where Madame Bovary meets Bridget Jones in what could often be called a comedy of errors...

Two's Company : Love Again - A Woman's Journey Press Reviews

'“TWO’S COMPANY”, Helene Pascal’s chronicle of her adventures in the dating game is madly readable: bright and intelligent like the writer herself. It took pluck to thrust herself among strangers, in her sixties, via the lonely hearts columns, and then to be so candid about the results. Will she fall for another plausible scrounger, will that nice chap ring her back as he promised, are all men self-deluding? The ever-hopeful Helene’s gripping, fast-paced and often hilarious tales will appeal vastly to the rising demographic of singletons:   I warmly recommend it.  VALERIE GROVE (author and Times writer)


Two's Company is a journey through the spirits of singledom in your sixties, high, low and everywhere in between.  Ham & High

'A searingly honest account which radiates heart. Wonderfully written, “Two’s Company” is a brave and funny roller-coaster ride. I found it impossible to put down.'

SALLY FARMILOE-NEVILLE (author of “Sensual Pleasures”)
