What to expect

‘There are three sides to every story. Your side, their side, and the truth . . .’

Jojo, a sharkish literary agent, has just made a very bad career move – she’s slept with her married boss Mark. Lily, Jojo’s bestselling author, has blown her advance on a house with new boyfriend Anton, only to come down with writer’s block. Gemma used to be Lily’s best friend until Lily ran off with Anton. Now she’s pouring her heart out, and a certain literary agent likes her style . . .

Soon the fortunes of Jojo, Lily and Gemma are horribly entangled. But each is about to discover that there’s more than one side to every story . . .

Wonderful, subtle, hilarious and highly sophisticated.’ Evening Standard

‘It had me in tears . . . and barking with laughter’ Daily Telegraph

‘Keyes’s genius lies in making the darkest, most difficult aspects of humanity mentionable and manageable . . . Keyes’s plot is cracking, but the story becomes even bolder and brighter because she lets her characters tell it’ Independent

‘Packed with sound writing, wit and common sense’ Guardian
