'There are no grown-ups.' Everyone in this wickedly entertaining novel, whatever their age, bullies or deceives or adores someone else, in the merciless playgrounds of London flats, country villages, television studios and conferences. At the centre of it all is Leo Ulm, social scientist and media guru, who magnetizes his wives, lovers and friends with his fading brilliance. He obsesses them all, including clear-eyed Clara, though she may often wish he were dead. The god of his own universe, Leo is monstrously vain and arrogant - until something happens which leaves all the women in his life in shock. Then, perhaps, Clara begins to grow up....

It's never too late to say sorry...... A whispered family tragedy ripples across three generations in this coming of age mother and daughter memoir. Sylvia is dying and her daughter, a British expat living in Dubai, recalls her childhood and the confusing relationship she had with her mother. After Sylvia's death, she searches for explanations amongst her mother's possessions, prompting uncomfortable childhood memories and clues to her mother's sadness.

Kitty's mother, Marina, is both utterly beguiling and terrifyingly embarrassing, and more often than not Kitty can only gaze on her antics with awe and toe-curling trepidation. But as Kitty grows up it becomes clear that perhaps Marina isn't the most exemplary of parents, and that sometimes a girl might have to put herself first. Sophie Dahl writes with a keen eye, a warm heart and wonderful lyricism about a coming-of-age that's quite unlike any other.

Type: BOOK - Published: 1990 - Publisher:
In this witty collection of essays, Alison Lurie considers authors such as A.A.Milne, E.Nesbit, Frances Hodgson Burnett, Lewis Carroll and J.R.R.Tolkien, and demonstrates that their enduring quality lies partly in the way they satirize adult society and speak with subversive directness to the imagination of the young reader. Together with fairy tales, rhymes and jokes, their stories provide a more powerful and resonant appeal than more carefully crafted morally improving literature.

Exciting new work dissecting the thirty-something preoccupation with status Very much a play of our times, The Grown-Ups is a gripping examination of the way we live now and the thirty-something preoccupation with status, materialism and what it really means to be a 'grown-up' in contemporary Ireland. 'You've no money, no career, no substance. You're renting these days, people think there's something wrong with you.' Alan and Nicola are a couple desperate to keep pace with the boom time. However, when Alan's sister Amy is involved in a scandal, Alan finds himself questioning his values and wondering if success can truly be measured by money, ambition and material gain. The Grown-Ups is a modern-day thriller that has at its heart the malaise of a society 'seduced by extravagance'. The play received its world premiere at the Abbey Theatre's Peacock Theatre, Dublin, on 10 February 2006.
