A Certain Age Summary

A Certain Age by Lynne Truss

From the bestselling author of `Eats Shoots & Leaves', a wonderfully funny collection of twelve monologues.

In the tradition of Alan Bennett's `Talking Heads' come Lynne Truss's twelve bittersweet tales about love, romance, friendship and family. Her six men and six women each have very different stories to tell, ranging from the wife who feels better when her husband disappears to the pedant who undergoes a TV makeover and the swimmer who can't escape the shadow of her sister...but all are funny, touching and as beautifully observed as would be expected from the bestselling author. Whether describing fathers and daughters, married men, cat-lovers or `other women', she is always brilliantly perceptive.

A Certain Age Reviews

`Dazzling...sad, funny and, of course, exquisitely written; superb; finely crafted.' Daily Mail

'Deliciously rich in plot twists and character surprises- sharp
observation is happily married to a bracing sense of the ridiculous.' Daily Telegraph

'Top-quality writing.' Sunday Times

'Beautifully observed... Truss is simply a huge talent.' Guardian
