Mad About The Boy

Maggie Alderson

'Some of my best friends are homosexuals. I just didn't expect my husband to be one too.'
A year after Antonia and Hugh move to Australia with their 4 year old son Tom, everything is going terribly well. They have a lovely house, they're very popular - and then Hugh tells Antonia he is gay and has a boyfriend ...
It's only the arrival of Ant's outrageous lavender-haired uncle Percy that lifts her out of her depression and sends her off to the gym - to combat the lardy thighs her comfort eating has given her - where she meets the mysterious James, and falls head over heels in lust.
Soon Ant finds she's over Hugo - but by then her problems are only just beginning ...
