CLASS IS DEAD!
Or so everyone claims. Who better to refute this than Jilly Cooper!
Describing herself as 'upper middle class', Jilly claims that snobbery is very much alive and thriving! Meet her hilarious characters! People like Harry Stow-Crat, Mr and Mrs Nouveau-Richards, Samantha and Gideon Upward, and Jen Teale and her husband Brian. Roar with laughter at her horribly unfair observations on their everyday pretensions - their sexual courtships, choice of furnishings, clothes, education, food, careers and ambitions...
For they will all remind you of people that you know!
Witheringly funny, illuminated by astonishing brilliance
Enormously readable and very funny
Highly entertaining, acerbic and wickedly observant... certain to become as much part of the verbal shorthand as was Nancy Mitford's U and Non-U, a generation ago
The inimitable Jilly Cooper may be known for her racy novels, but she started her writing life as a marriage columnist, meaning she has plenty to say on love, relationships and life’s biggest questions
