Following in the footsteps of her hilarious account of living in India (Travels with my Economist, 2012), Lisa turns her attention closer to home, scrutinising and reflecting on the myriad relationships that make up our lives. She probes fraught, often muddled family and extended family situations; consults friends, lawyers and other professionals for opinions; scours libraries and DVD shops for inspiration; and also takes a good long look at herself — her early life, her own relationships and her struggles with her appearance.
Peppered with quirky cameos from the economist, as well as tongue-in-cheek asides on house guest, pets, handbags, toxic friendships and yoga pants . . . it’s a rollicking good read.
