From the best-selling authors of The Leap Year comes the much-anticipated second collection of short stories by The Contemporary Women Writers’ Club.
It's Ten Past Eight on the night of the World Cup Final and 12 women's lives are about to change: a friendship washes away in a summer storm; a talking dog incriminates its owner with a mobile phone; a frustrated cook spices things up in the kitchen and an internet addict finds love online. There's no end to the twists in these compelling tales.
“I love the women in this collection: subversive, dangerous, so much more than wives and mothers. These stories give a glimpse of the extraordinary within the domestically mundane; a glimpse of the strangeness and singularity of women's internal lives.” Jojo Moyes
With an introduction by Rachel Johnson, editor of The Lady and an additional celebrity story by original WAG Vanessa Hoddle, Ten Past Eight is essential reading for every self-respecting woman’s summer escape.
