What to expect

Brought to you by Penguin.

One truth I have learnt, as middle age enmeshes me like Virginia creeper, is that I shall never change—because my capacity for self-improvement is absolutely nil.’

A classic collection of journalism from the legendary Jilly Cooper. Wonderfully warm and astonishingly acerbic, Jilly’s observations from her days as a much-loved newspaper columnist cover everything on sex, socialising and survival - from marriage and friendship; the minutiae of family life and the tedium of going to visit people for the weekend; to the stress of hosting dinner parties and the descent of middle age.

Entertaining and full of heart, join Jilly Between the Covers to explore the very highs and lows of everyday life.

Praise for Jilly Cooper:
'Joyful and mischievous' Jojo Moyes
'Fun, sexy and unputdownable' Marian Keyes
'Flawlessly entertaining' Helen Fielding

No one else can make me laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time, quite like Jilly Cooper
