And what do you do?
Sarah Long
Random House
Laura?s life seems like a dream ? she has a handsome husband, two gorgeous children and a lady-of-leisure lifestyle in the idyllic French capital. Her days consist of mornings t?te-?-t?tes with girlfriends over croissants and grand cr?me. Afternoons in the Louvre follow and her evenings are filled with stylish soirees. This perfect life is torn apart when her husband embarks on an affair with irritatingly petite Flavia. Laura decides it?s time to review her life. This is a very funny and perceptive book which will resonate with mothers all over the world (working or not) and anyone who has been married for more than about 5 years. Sarah Long has it in for the French with her scathingly amusing take on the whole French population, not to mention the rather gruesome French doctor with whom she embarks on her vengeful extra-marital affair is a marvellous character. An excellent fun read not to be taken too seriously!

Tales of a Female Nomad
Rita Gelman
Random House
?I?ve been living and loving my nomadic existence since the day in 1986 when, at the age of forty eight, on the verge of a divorce, I looked around and thought, There has to be more than one way to do life.? This brilliant book is the story of how life can change amazingly and permanently. Now fifteen years later, Rita is still traveling and this story allows you to join her on the incredible journey of discovery and adventure, from her first tentative trip to Mexico through the Galapagos Islands and all the way south to Bali, Thailand and even to New Zealand. The book is classed as a ?travel/memoir? but it is much more than that ? read it if you dream of escaping the every day grind and traveling the world experiencing life! www.ritagoldengelman.com
